For Poetry Potluck

basics”

(in haiku)

*

invisible force

timelessly carving spaces

from the winds of time

*

firmamental mist

all engulfing foggy shroud

drips water of life

*

from nothing dancing

without substance still living

primordial fire

*

darkly seething deep

blackened bowels of infant stone

earth in the making

*

  9. I like this a lot, Tracy. The four elements are at root of so much of life, history, myth,the arts. Haiku is a wonderful form with which to display their power. Excellent.
