Gogyohka sequence for damselflies

#Haiku Happenings #6: Jane Dougherty’s latest #gogyohka sequence for #dVersePoets #MTB!

Jane Dougherty Writes

Frank Tassone was kind enough to choose a poem of mine to feature as an example of the gogyohka form for the dverse prompt this evening. Thank you, Frank. Here are three more.

silver the pool

pewter the sky

and in the golden dust of bedstraw

the damsels fly

on wings colour of sunsets

heat and damselflies hover


light as sunbeams among the alders

water-dipping in the dark cool of tree shadow


sun and water and deep tree shade

the stray ray that falls

the flash like coloured lightning

of lace wings dipped in sapphire

kingfisher insect sips the light
