indeed, the juggler does capture the "awe" lovely haiku! After writing mine, I watched videos of street performers juggling for an hour...awe is the proper word:)

JUGGLER

Magyar, the theme 'juggler' was the prompt distilled from the poem, i stuck closer to the poem rather than the image in composing my haiku; happy this sparked your interest


Juggler
A ball will bounce; but less and less. It's not
A light-hearted thing, resents its own resilience.
Falling is what it loves, and the earth falls
So in our hearts from brilliance,
Settles and is forgot.
It takes a sky-blue juggler with five red balls...
Richard Wilbur

much love...

Red Ryder was a local who used to awe theaters full of magicians at our conventions. We always gave him a long-standing ovation...He was found at too young an age stabbed to death near his home a few years ago....He is missed...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wOkhtrySDZI
