    Where Light and Dark Part

    windows, light fading
    bright altar set to atone
    dusty red crossroads

    An Ancient Image

    shadow at the door
    field crop of long golden grains
    fast horse, no saddle

    Solitude And Time's Slow Arc

    two cats, one dead mouse
    empty white wagon, blue house
    sunset's reddish glow

    Life Views

    high trail, rocky ledge
    winter's beauty, snowy ground
    fallen tree, red plums

    Things That Truly Delight

    hot cup of coffee
    noon sun, flower blossoms red
    moon, sky gleaming bright

    Seen And Unseen

    new birth, its beauty
    sorrows darkest shadow shown
    ancient forest burned

    Seen And Noted

    foggy dawn, old road
    new car grill, dead butterfly
    short sunset shadows

    Wilderness Found

    blue sky, whitest clouds
    old trail, ancient woods burnt
    empty house, sad scene

    Haiku Captcha contest sponsored by Harry Horsman

    Contest requirements-
    Contest Description
    What to Submit?


    1 original, poem on the theme of .your login captcha.....and use the figures in order for the beginning of each line. If there is a number or three use the letter ---7=s, 8=e etc. The only exception is the letter x, which i'm making a wild card figure, in other words any letter, you choose. But the title must contain the x, as an example all title must be haiku abc or haiku wxx, haiku 123 which would become, ott, so what ever the captcha is must follow the title haiku, you need only put the date at the bottom of the poem,,,Oh and by the way, i'm relying on your honesty, to use the first captcha of your log in , Try and stay as original as possible to the true concept of the haiku, but i am flexible somewhat on borderline..This is my first contest for 5 years, I won't go in to reason why...Harry

    Reflections

    blood stained, long sharp knife
    apple pie smell, window sill
    snow covered forest
