Happy Haiku Day


Petals close as sun
sets, wrap stamen in darkness
Tulips say goodnight

NaPoWriMo Prompt Day 17 – Today, I challenge you to write a nocturne. In music, a nocturne is a composition meant to be played at night, usually for piano, and with a tender and melancholy sort of sound. Your nocturne should aim to translate this sensibility into poetic form! Need more inspiration? Why not listen to one of history’s most famous nocturnes, Chopin’s Op. 9 No. 2?

Welcome back to day 17 of NaPoWriMo. I know I wrote about petals closing at night with a picture of the flowers wide open during the day. And yes, folks it is Haiku Day! So everyone try and write a haiku today.
