Jade Li’s “#Haikai Challenge #197, #195, #196 (Trifecta) haibun series”

#Haiku Happenings #1 (6/27/21): Jade Li’s latest #haibun series for my current #Haikai Challenge!

"Wilted flower" by Francesca Rizzo | Redbubble

Each night in June, I’ve added an addendum to my prayers to please be awakened in the night to the sounds of thunder.

Paling leaves wilt
in sol’s hot white stare —
fish wriggle dry ponds.


RESERVED for Darlene The Flooded Field 12x12 abstract art ...

Where we have had a weeks-long drought, plants and bird baths needed daily attention. Three days ago, steel grey clouds blew in and soon began to empty, quenching all.

Midsummer’s long rain
makes shallow pools of fields –
robins dunk for worms.


Strawberry Moon seen from S'pore a challenge to photograph ...

June’s many clear nights have passed observing lady luna’s slow disrobement.

Primed for finale
strawberry moon blushes
hides in the clouds.



I chose to write the haibun series in 197, 195, 196 order as that’s how the weather played itself out.
