short story slam, memory, childhood play toy, and yugen haiku

r is for red radish

The Tuesday Platform

 Carpe Diem Haiku Writing Techniques #18 Yugen haiku

an ongoing seesaw
bumping high and low

two cute hands 
clapping loudly for Lynch

a fresh radish plant
muddy from wet soil


brown furry bear
a soft toy for Prisca Blair
the sweet childhood affair

the sweet childhood affair
as real toads bunny hop the pond
what beautiful rebound

Love your red radish haiku.

Nice haiku groupings, Lucinda. I liked your covering the two axes, then skipping to colors, red-green. I was expecting the third axis, in-out.
The radish arrangement is pretty, as good as flowers.
Thank you for visiting my "Late night TV" poem.

Wonderful photo of the tree frogs. My daughter in Australia has got a lot of them on her land. The tiny baby ones are cute.
Have a great week!

I love how much can be captured in the few words it takes to write Haiku. Happy ABC Wednesday! #24

I love radish, particularly cooked a la francaise....
sautéed in butter and black pepper and served as a
side for sweet cured bacon, fried free range eggs and
garlic mushrooms...a breakfast with a twist..deliceaux !

The pictures of the frogs are superb too !

Su-sieee! Mac said...

I read them first as two different poems. I liked them as long poems and as separate haikus.
