Promise me, morning,
that shadows are but fleeting,
no portent of night

  1. A very thought provoking haiku . Tell me Caroline, what has happened to the wonderful contemporary Japanese images to strengthen your haiku? Have you changed your creative approach? I can see a dark alley in Ueno just as the sun rises.

    • Thank you for the comment! I’m glad to see that my Japan photos are appreciated, and they will be back soon. For the time being, though, I’m trying to stretch myself a little by doing the Poem a Day challenge over at They set the themes each day, whereas I usually write based on a photo I’ve taken.
