Haiku Friday: Cobwebs

HistoriansToday my haiku is from October 9th of my book A Haiku Book of Days for Spiritual Seekers, Dreamers, and Other Lovers of Magic & Mystery, one of a 7-book series. The topic for today is: “Cobwebs”

bless instead of curse
even cobwebs throw shadows
and darken your day

It’s Haiku Friday again. For the past twenty years or so, it has been my practice to write one haiku every day. Every Friday I share a haiku here, about whatever topic I happen to choose. I invite you to write a haiku on this topic too, and share it with me and the readers of this blog. Just write it in the Comments below. The only rules are: 1) your haiku must be about the named topic; 2) you must follow the 5-7-5 syllable format; 3) no obscenities or hate (I will delete those). That’s it.

You can purchase this book on Amazon here.

One thought on “Haiku Friday: Cobwebs

  1. With apologies
    to Michel Legrand’s “Windmills”
    I offer “Cobwebs…”

    ‘Round like a circle
    in a spiral, spider spins
    web spokes like a wheel,

    Never ending, so
    inviting, sticky web snared
    prey, and gave a meal.

    Cobweb clock hands are
    frozen, marking the hours and
    minutes on its’ face.

    Abandoned cobwebs
    catch the dew, backlit, sun-kissed,
    now becoming lace.

    And the words become
    spiders, spinning inviting
    webs in cyber-space…

    Snaring readers with
    words & thoughts you find in the
    cobwebs of your mind!
