Alexey Andreyev’s haiku 'Empty Swing'
for inspiration:

summer evening -
empty swing swaying slightly
forward … back …                 -  Alexey

Wishful thinking chills
of waning of winter belies
thoughts of lovely spring

Spring permeates point-blank
Knocking at the door perplexed
Are colors abhorred?

Yearnings of summer
Novelty imagined as
yet to be realized                     -  Hank’s

Written for Chev’s CARPE DIEM Haiku Kai Special #71  -  Empty Swing


  1. ah but it will be realized, soon enough...spring is coming...there is a nice gentle rhythm in your words as well with the alliteration....

  2. thoughts of spring sure spring to mind

  3. Yearnings of summer - swings and life, dreams to be fulfilled. Great poerm
