mercury rising -
merciless life-giving sun
endangers all life

  1. Like your haiku, Catherine. 'merciless life-giving sun' - interestingly oxymoronic? And thanks for stopping by my blog. Things look good round these here parts!

    Cheers

  2. Thanks Luke. I thought maybe it was more of a paradox?? But I'm not exactly a grammar fundi... just write what 'feels' right to me without understanding why half the time lol

  5. Haiku is probably my favourite style of poetry. I relish trying to tell an entire story in 17 syllables... Thanks for the invite to Poets Rally will definitely be popping in.
