A Host of Haiku – Or how to do a Haiku – Or Haiku to you!

Screenshot_2014-08-18-14-03-36-1

Just five syllables

Followed by seven others

And five more to end.

The first two lines show

The poem’s sense and meaning;

The last line explores.

Japanese poets

Wrote sone fabulous haiku;

They were craft masters.

My haiku lack skill;

Being just feint Iimitations;

But, practice does help.

Try haiku yourself,

You will find them Iintriging;

And quite addictive.

  2. I love Haiku and tanka–they were my “go to” forms for a long time. However, I suspect the Japanese would not appreciate my “relaxed” style–I’m not good at keeping to strict “season, nature, sense & meaning” rules. All this babbling to say, I’m glad I found you through C.C.–it’s the best way to find good blogs/bloggers, through others you admire/respect. Have a great day, and I’ll go away and write now….

  3. Dawn waits in darkness
    creeping up on summer hills.
    Will they be surprised?
    Or will they yell, “BOO!”
    and scare the living daylights
    from the sky for good?
