Empty Rocker – Small Stone

Also Day 9 – Small Stone

Kristjaan Panneman, host of Carpe Diem Haiku Kai challenges us with a Carpe Diem Special for this month titled “empty swing” …  “The goal of this Special is to write a new haiku in the same sense, tone and Spirit as the one given of the featured haiku-poet.  This month the featured poet is Alexey Andreyev.”

Alexey Andreyev’s inspiration

summer evening –
empty swing swaying slightly
forward … back …


old wooden rocker
padded with memories
creaking back and forth …

    Nothing better than the swishing of a rocking chair, which you have conveyed well.

  2. Your verse flows seamlessly from the prompt, Becca, the imagery so clear. The phrase ‘padded with memories’ made me catch my breath! 🙂


  3. Good to see you here again Becca … you did great on this haiku by Alexey … yours is very much in tune with his haiku. Thank you for sharing. You were missed.
