Stepping Stones Haiku
I found this haiku prompt at Carpe Diem: A Daily Haiku Meme. The prompt #56- a Carpe Diem Special.
The featured haiku poet for this month is O. Mabson Southard. The goal of the Specials is to write a new haiku/senryu in the same tone, sense and spirit as the one given by the featured haiku poet. Southard wrote his haiku with the classical 5-7-5 syllable count and used punctuation. Here is the given example:
In the garden pool,
dark and still, a steppingstone
releases the moon.
On the stepping stones,
My feet dance as my mind dreams
of moonbeams and stars.
