Today’s haiku was inspired by last night’s Quadrantid meteor shower. In some ways, it was a disappointment (read why on my “Thoughts Over Coffee” blog,) but I still managed to make three wishes.

Twinkling stars travel

From distant galaxies to

Grant an earthling’s wish

Did you see any shooting stars? Would love to hear your haiku.

    Aliens falling
    Disguised as a shooting star
    Now, neighbor next door.

    I forgot to get up early 😦 But i loved your haiku and your essay about the not so disappointing wait.

    Here’s mine:

    I saw no dark stars
    Nor bright ones streaking over
    Only silent skies

    Finally, I have the time to play! Here’s mine:

    A brilliant flash
    A piece of heaven has died
    But we are richer.

  4. Jan, I love that! Here’s what descended on me.

    The darker the night
    The brighter the star. Look up
    Be joyful, in awe.

    Notice how weird mine is and almost dark compared to everyone elses! That’s what you get when you cross a children’s author with a romantic suspense writer and add a splash of women’s fiction. I write in all those genres. I must be strange.

    Here are a few that have been left on Facebook, but not on my blog. I like them so well, I’m sharing them here, too:


    Shooting stars and
    meteor showers are but
    God’s pixie dust. — by Bud

    A great Haiku Jan. Here’s mine –

    falling from the sky
    someone’s wish upon a star –
    why can’t it be mine

  8. kdmccrite says:

    I loved all these, each different and tapping into our feelings. Here’s mine:

    Shooting stars shine bright
    Melt midnight from velvet sky
    Bestow hope below

  9. Denton Gay says:

    A shooting star crashes
    the lamp in pieces
    her eyes glare

    Isn’t all fiction supposed to have conflict? πŸ™‚

    • Jan Morrill says:

      Denton, you make a good point! I just love the differences in all of these – I would have never related a shooting start to a shattered lamp or glaring eyes. πŸ™‚

I love to read your comments, even more, your HAIKU!
