TJ’s Household Haiku Challenge – Dew



Cleanse me, erase my

darkness, purge my soul, morning

dew. You, my saviour.


Skin brushed by breeze, I

lick the droplets from leaf tips

and inhale the morn.


TJ has reinvigorated his Household Haiku Challenge and given us haiku addicts a choice – be inspired by the photo he provides, or by the word prompt (‘dew’ this week), or, if you’re feeling completely crazy, use both!

I went for ‘dew’ (yes, really I did!), and as has become my pattern so far (third week running), I offer two haiku for you to read. I hope you enjoy them both!

Please do head on over to TJ’s blog, read the haiku, or go crazy yourself and take part – why not?

  2. be aware… my tears
    of unrequited love… dew…
    contagious… drink not

    i clench my hands…
    prayers offered… begging
    my tears forming dew

    i give my love
    she looks at me… my dearest
    your crying… why

    my knees give… heart broke
    i kneel before her asking…
    why do you tell lies

    you know she asked
    how… i say i love you
    yes…but with blank eyes

    i beg you please leave
    i must cry you out or die
    she left… no look back

    cried.. drowning in tears
    i lay waiting my life done
    dreaming… late… must run

    thanks so much
    your poem inspired me
    look… read… have fun
