Pamela A. Babusci & Dawn Robin Albertson: Wednesday Haiku, 38


Wednesday Haiku, Week #38

walking past the waterliles i open my palms to the rain
Pamela A. Babusci Frogpond, Sept. 1996

mother's worn face
twilight on the shallow pond
my own reflection

Dawn Robin Albertson

the dog stops barking...
lotus blossoms!

Lovely. I am still amazed at the pairing now of two haiku and Issa. Wonderful fun. Thanks.

Issa's Untidy Hut said...

Thanks much ... I was afraid when I went to two haiku a post, I wouldn't be able to balance it, but the opposite has proved true, at least so far.

And you have sussed out my secret - I'm having a ball!

Peter Greene said...

Especially like the one about the dog, and then not the dog.

Pamela, Just gorgeous. Don simple... I feel the rain in my palm...

Issa's Untidy Hut said...

Old 333, yes, the dog, than not the dog ...

Issa's Untidy Hut said...

Thanks, Snowbird ... Pamela's poem is lovely.

Elegant, pristine, perfectly balanced,

-- and WV wants me to say "flea m[n]emn[onics]" (the tiny filigreed synapse maps of the memory bank of a particularly discreet flea?)...

In any event, yes, with a good friend, the experience of

same thought, same time

is always one of the pure pleasures.
