This week’s prompts were very much about Springtime and nature. I still managed to turn a couple into senryu (about human nature).

May 13th – chick

Aw, come on, now, chick.
Don’t tell me you don’t want to…
Crack out! See the world!

May 14th – skylark

Wings fluttering high,
Song rising to the angels.
Skylark ascending.

May 15th – hills

I feel like running
O’er the hills and far away.
Hunting lost rainbows.

May 16th – primrose

How prim is a rose?
Upright buds blush pinkly, then
Unfurl, brazen red.

May 17th – road

Make your own road, dear
Paved with smiling caresses,
Not random insults…

May 18th— nightingale

Vibrant cadenza
with coloratura frills.
Nightingale divas.

May 19th – butterfly

Her wings faded echoes,
of the peacock she once was.
A ghost butterfly.
