Carpe Diem Special #68 – Hando: Innocence

#68 – Hando’s “puddles on the pavement” The challenge: To write a haiku in the same sense, spirit, and tone as this one:

the puddles on the pavement
carry the moon, the stars
and cherry blossoms (credit: Hando)

My attempt:

Water reflects child
cupping the swirling liquid
he grasps lost heart’s soul

Click the Carpe Diem button and head on over to try your hand!

Hope you enjoy.

Happy Reading and Writing!

  1. dawwwwww how sweet

    • Thanks! Originally I had it as a man seeing his lost son in his reflection, but for the life of me couldn’t make it fit the syllable count, so I went with a “nicer” version 🙂

  2. What a sweet haiku very much in tune with Hando’s.
