As Gently as Haiku – National Poetry Day – 17

This from Robert Brewer’s Poetic Asides blog.

“For today’s prompt, write a haiku. Simple as that. Or well, if you’d prefer, write a poem about haiku; I’ve done this before. So that’s an option too; or write about poetic forms in general.”

Here’s what I came up with.

———

The Winged Fae

She skips
across the pond
as gently as a haiku

drips from a poet’s tongue,
harvesting the sunlight
that shimmers

on the water,
in the lilies as delicate
as tea cups.
