Grandfather Koi

Today’s goal at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai is to first create the 2nd stanza followed by a three lined stanza and a two lined stanza. Here is the haiku to work with:


ah! morning glories
are at their best while I chant
my morning prayers  © Kyoroku

near a sparkling koi pond

dragonflies land on lily pads.

 

Grandfather koi swims

lazily with younger fish

his large tail jostling

lily pads; dragonflies startle!
