Chrysanthemum Dreams

bright chrysanthemums
exploding in weary eyes
let dreams begin

My response to Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie Heeding Haiku With Chèvrefeuille, October 19th 2016

In this episode of Heeding Haiku With … it is haiku-time again and our challenge is to create a haiku in which we share our dreams or bring our dreams to life… or just create a haiku about dreams.

Chèvrefeuille has shared two examples, one written by Matsuo Basho and one of his own:

summer grass–
all that remains
of warriors’ dreams

 praying in my dreams
to be an Eagle in his flight
what a freedom
