Cascade (Double Haiku)

by Jenni   Jul 19, 2012


Enveloped with mist;
Illuminative moon rays
cause rocks to glisten.

Dragonflies whisper;
'tween timberland scenery
water tumbles down.

    This is very beautiful and the imagery is fantastic.

    The first stanza means it is night as you see the moon reflections. I love the moon rays as it shows how bright the moon is and I can imagine the stars trying to shine behind clouds but the mist means the grass is damp and the rain is going to fall. I can also maybe imagine a beach with the night time as peaceful as you write it.

    Dragonflies are a nice touch with the mist. I love that they whisper. But the way you worded this can make anyone feel at peace. The word timberland really brings out the poem here. Now all I see is a wooded area with all the creatures stirring and whipsers calm the night air. While the rain starts to fall. You bring such a simple piece to life. 5/5
