Haiku Silence Is the Star

Haiku Silence Is the Star

A Poem by Nancy Lee Shrader

 
Haiku Silence is a Star

 

 

                                                                   




Silence is the star
Kissing a flower with dew
Drizzling from starlight



Silence in the night
Is heard by budding roses
Feeling the moment



Daisies too listen
As the dew falls from the stars
Kissing their petals



Sunflowers reach up
To catch every drop that falls
On each summer night



Purple heather too
Wait for the silent dewdrops
Filling the meadow



Peony blooms wait
As ants and the silent dew
Stars call the ants in the night



Honeysuckle blooms
Sparsely grow on desert sands
Drinking up the dew



Hear the silent stars
Yes, silently, so silent
Kissing each flower



Listen in the night
To star, flower love affair
Stars and flowers unite

I like this haiku string a lot! I just wrote a poem too for this contest. I experimented with repeated rhymes line by line. It wasn't easy but quite challenging.
