Havens Lights



last night I saw heavens lights
low in the southern sky
the milkyway revealed

then a fallen star
shot across an endless fault
trailing colors__ glorious illumination

rainbow of colors
streamed from its tail
pass red Mars__across Saturns moons

a golden color wheel__ stardust
ablaze crisscrossed silent in darkness
filling my longing eyes

Hello Melanie. Beautiful piece. So imaginative and fantastical. Thank you for your kindness and effort to visit my blog. I liked the way you tnansformed my haiku into a contemporary one. It's much simple and the thought was still there. I've already read a lot of contemporary haikus before and yes it gives the writer more freedom and simplicity of thoughts, but i think i'm gonna stick with what i'm more familiar with although i really appreciate your appreciation and encouragement to share me another way of writing a haiku. Thank you for your frienship and kindness. I enjoyed the read.

>>God bless you and your family. Have a good day!!!:)
