Dreamer



i soar up the sky
white is the colour of my dream
curled in ice crystal clouds


higher and bolder 
black is the ink of my pen
circling the open fields, beyond


my brown wingspan,  i touch
the wild azure, covering feathers
with gold dust and grains


star gazing, i sprawl 
across the page, river edge
in red, green and blue




Posted for Poetry Jam:   Color Your Life:  red, green and blue are primary colors
and Haiku Heights:  prompt is page - my suggestion for HH (aka Heaven)

  1. The photograph is beautiful and the poem really fits the prompt of "page" to me - life as a page- gives me a sense of wide expanse and wings - possibilities. I really like this poem.

  3. Heaven,
    The misty morning or heavenly evening, a picture so tantalizing! Your verse soars and hovers above all that!

  11. I spent an hour or so photographing a bald eagle a few weeks ago ... your poem reminds me of the magic I felt watching him.

  13. I especially liked the first haiku:

    i soar up the sky
    white is the colour of my dream
    curled in ice crystal clouds

    Wonderful imagery, so ... heavenly :)
