Haiku My Heart - Chance


Chance:  a possibility or probability of anything happening


Like the lone leaf on a winter's bare branches
waiting for its chance to fall
and join the others in its fate

  we link to


knowing we will find a chance of love
and friendship with other haiku writers. 
Chance is everywhere.
Grab it when you can, and ride along with faith
 knowing, like the lone leaf,  you might ride
the wind of chance to your true destiny. 


Haiku

she no longer sings
her freedom has now been  caged
her silence is loud

****

There is a  CHANCE her cage door will be opened
There is a CHANCE her heart will be free again
And there is a CHANCE she may be able to add her singing voice to the



NIGHT ORCHESTRA


in the stillness of night
under soft celestial light
 nature’s  quiet audience  breathlessly waits

 listening

 a gentle breeze anticipates
 tickling forest leaves into a tambourine rustle
 as tiny green tree frogs begin a high pitched chorus

from the back hills a long low rumble
as the moon caresses a coyote’s throat
and a daybird shrieks its displeasure at being disturbed

a chuck-will’s widow begins his nocturnal call

and the wind - the unseen night breeze
the conductor who signaled the sounds
 moves quickly from stage west into the night space

anxious to moan the tale of its travels as the night music begins




Blessings and many chances for a
beautiful weekend.

  5. Such a powerful haiku... I feel that chance, just waiting to be taken... the night orchestra will celebrate well into the light of the day... XO

    P.S. The trumpets in my post are actually called trumpet daffodils and are a kind of narcissus!
