Some dreams are bubbles
Light airy ones float with ease
Few occupy urns

    Hmm, I don’t often disagree with fellow poets, but I’m wondering if the last line is true. Can’t even ashes dream?🙂

    My Take on the Prompt

  5. Old Raven says:

    This is very clever. You know, somehow with a prompt especially for a Haiku … I feel constrained. But seeing the Haiku of others for this prompt is very freeing.

  6. Mike says:

    Great Haiku Becca.
    Life is for living your dreams.

  7. Nanka says:

    I liked the idea of you having learnt a new word ~ ‘Kalash’🙂 You really researched it well!!

  10. Lovely, Becca, really lovely. I love the urn. It is raku. It is one of my
    favorite types of pottery. It fit your Haiku well. Your words are always
