1846



sometimes balloons
leave the party to frolic -
Children's carnival

out in the streets
the wind finds new rhythm -
Children's carnival

splendor of colour
in the cheer of bright sunshine -
Children's carnival

walk through the city
a backdrop of bird songs
and its radiance

what songs those birds sing -
fixed notes outside my window
fills an azure sky
--© gillena cox 2016


A morning clear bright, busy with bird songs dry hot and dusty, we'll have a lot of those for a while, it Dry Season, and its good for the season of Carnival. But that's not all, there's the blizzard in US shutting down so much of life's activities there, hoping, wishing, praying it subsides soon soon.

jubilation
in your honor


Admit I took a chance
surrounding preparation
peppy circumstance.

to cherish and hold
long stemmed roses
--Sanaa Rizvi, Saudi Arabia

transforms to daybreak
counting dreams

cheers my friend...
we clink ten times
to celebrate

in the once
that still is...
many years
happy, Happy Anniversary!

ten years
a toast in front of
the fireplace

lunch break—
inside the shell
a smooth pearl

daffodils and crystals lead
to many more

luminous stars
each
on its own

its bubbles tell of time

Raising hopes, they walk
on the multicolored moon
to share the same dream.

1838


I imagine a star, rising, much like dandelion puffs in the lightness of an ethereal breeze, spun on the threads of wanderlust and bohemian trysts, the core of vanishing, the sparks of genius, reaching higher higher higher; travelling at the speed of esoteric.

sun beams and moon rays -
in the rhythm of silence
he David fleeing

Process Note: I used an image from google dot com, of Bowie clothed in black and white; manipulaled the image using Pic Monkey, to get the present image and added text for a haiga

(hokku)

at the seashore
wind of summer through my hair
the shortest night
© Chèvrefeuille

this heat fanned by evening gusts
mixed scent of blossoms inhaled

bougainvillea tips
orchestrated to skips of
butterflies in flight

little kiskadee flies in
variegated yellow leaves

clear bright sunny day
a patch of clear blue sky near
a clump of cloud puffs


(ageku)

little room is left to sigh
season of Carnival reigns
