MALAYSIAN HAIKU/TANKA ECHOES 195: ROOF

MALAYSIAN HAIKU/TANKA ECHOES 195: ROOF

 

 

Claudia McGill composed an excellent haiku on an old stone structure:

 

Red roof tiles slick up

 turn silver backs to the sky

 in the pounding rain

 

I was so inspired reading it, and added two extra seven syllables-line to turn her haiku into a tanka:

 

shelter against sun and rain

strong and leaked proof over years

MALAYSIAN HAIKU/SENRYU ECHOES 176: MORNING HEAT

MALAYSIAN HAIKU/SENRYU ECHOES 176: MORNING HEAT

 

 

bright sunny morning

brief dawn, heat shivers landscape

shadows lurk below

 

Note:

This haiku was inspired by Paul F. Lenzi, Three Haiku, and the impressive painting, Morning Heat by Georgiana Romanova. Many thanks to both.
