With Every Gust – a haiku and a troiku

with every gust of wind
a sigh of seeding grasses
purple misted marsh

with every gust of wind
waves leave imprints in the sand
trace of salty kiss

a sigh of seeding grasses
still warm from late summer sun
a seaside romance

purple misted marsh
drains the sky of sparkling blue
muted autumn hue

Kim M. Russell, 2017

With every gust

My response to Carpe Diem Chèvrefeuille’s Gift #6 gust of wind

In another episode of the special feature, ‘Chèvrefeuille’s Gift to You to Celebrate Our First Luster of Carpe Diem Haiku Kai’, he has challenged us not only to complete a haiku with a given first line but also to create a troiku from the haiku.
