Haiku Dialogue: Through the Prism of Pink

The week’s theme for The Haiku Foundation’s Haiku Dialogue was the color pink. The column, which is edited by Tia Haynes, focuses on a color as seen through the lens of haiku poets. Here is the one that Tia chose from this pedometer geek’s entries.

Another haiku, which was selected for April’s Stardust Haiku Issue #40, edited by Valentina Ranaldi-Adams, is as follows:

spring walk

a cat ribbons

between her legs

~Nancy Brady, 2020

Check out all the haiku on http://www.thehaikufoundation.org website under Haiku Dialogue as well as all of the haiku at http://www.stardusthaiku.blogspot.com as National Poetry Month comes to an end.

Next week’s prompt at Haiku Dialogue is purple, my favorite color. Haiku can be submitted until Saturday at 11:59PM on the website.

About pedometergeek

A pharmacist by profession, a haiku poet by nature, I read and write. I have a book of haiku, Ohayo Haiku, and another somewhat alternative haiku book, Three Breaths, but write other genres. I also read...lots of novels! My favorite is, and remains, Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged but I am also a big Harry Potter fan. I truly am a pedometer geek strapping on my pedometer as soon as I awaken.

    Yer in the pink! I saw a rose-breasted grosbeak at my feeder this morning… might have to work that into a ‘ku 😉

    • I have written a haiku about a rose-breasted grosbeak in the past. Something about wearing his heart on his sleeve although the heart is really on their chest,They are beautiful birds; I saw my first several years ago while volunteering at the local nature preserve (Old Woman Creek National Estuarine Research Reserve). Perhaps it is time to write one.
