Sky-clad

the new-born arrives
wrapped in stormy clouds and waves
a precious life

the new-born arrives
with wrinkles and eyes shut tight
an ancient soul

wrapped in stormy clouds and waves
long-awaited cry
stirs a mother’s love

a precious life
the first part of their journey
together

My response to Carpe Diem #1799 New Beginnings: a huge wave (Crossroads feature)

Today we have two haiku written by Jane Reichhold, from which to create a ‘fusion-ku’ and then, from that ‘fusion-ku’ a troiku:

a huge wave
thundering across the beach
my birthday

sky-clad
the new-born comes wrapped
in previous lives

Jane Reichhold (taken from her online Saijik, A Dictionary Of Haiku, section ‘New Year’)

  1. Everyone always remarked on how aware of everything my son seemed even from the first moments of his birth. He’s something of an old soul. Beautifully written poem.
