Celebrate Poetry-4/9: TIME

The theme for Day 9′s celebrating National Poetry Month is “Time.” Click HERE for details of this haiku celebration of throughout the month of April.

With blossoms full of color, new growth, weeds that must be kept at bay, I find gardens to be a good metaphor for life and love, and now for this haiku, time.

Is it two seasons
or a hundred since we met?
How the garden blooms.

    The clock starts to tick
    As I slowly loose my mind
    When will school let out

  2. Jim Barton says:

    the clock on the wall
    marks the season–tick-tick-tick:
    dog days of summer

  3. Whether like tortoise
    Or rabbit, time moves us on
    Make the most of it

    I like yours very much, Jan.

    shackled slave on sea —
    how many springs more
    to freedom?

  5. Azim Khan says:

    roses on a vase
    feeding on our memories
    how long ?

  6. I traveled through time
    Distant ages, and past lives
    To see you again.

  7. Azim Khan says:

    suddenly last summer
    we met
    time stood still

  8. Fay Guinn says:

    Old bones, eyes, bowels, mind
    forget to move — daily grind
    look backward in time

  9. Steve says:

    Smiling at first light
    fresh from sleep, her eyes soft brown
    The coffee can wait 

  10. Lewis colyar says:

    Our eternal clock:
    Never change backward, forward-
    Alarm set at birth.
