Writing with Chiyo-Ni (3) - "Morning Glories" July 14, 2014

Into the third week of July we meet up again with Chiyo-Ni one of the 5 haiku master's we're visiting with Carpe Diem Haiku Kai!

One of Chiyo-Ni's favorite subjects was morning glories:

asano eikou yoku baketto entanguru watashiha mizuwo motomeru
morning glory!
the well bucket-entangled,
I ask for water

morning glories --
in the middle of a dream

morning glory -
the truth is
the flower hates people

© Chiyo-Ni
When I was young, my mother planted morning glories near the front doo, and I was fascinated by the way they'd be closed until the first rays of the morning's sun ...

morning glories seek
their master's numinous rays
gently bowing

  1. Hello Georgia -- this is lovely -- the way the morning glory vines grow (so rapidly!) and intertwine themselves, it's like the whole plant is seeking, as much as the flower itself. Really liked this!

    1. :-) Thanks Jen! Morning glories like sun flowers are constantly seeking the sun ... a little like us I think. Glad you enjoyed the haiku!

  2. What an awesome haiku Georgia ... and the story behind it is just great ... a memory to cherish.

  3. Thanks very much Kristjaan. :-)


harmonious words ... like crystal clear water ... pure ectasy
