Haiku

‘Haiku’ – I find the word itself beautiful. But the poems are a million times better. Recently, I was exposed to this wonderful art form by Miss Kala Ramesh – huge thanks to her ๐Ÿ™‚ – ย and I have become very interested in these poems. The best part about haiku-writing, is that it teaches you how to describe beautifully without using adjectives or idioms or personification or metaphors or anything of the sort (I know, sounds intimidating!!!!) – the bare bones ONLY. I’m still learning, but here are a few of my first haiku (yes, haiku is both the plural and singular form of the word…) Hope to post more soon.

midsummer rain
frogs peep out and begin
their nightly chorus

~~~

big lake –
a toddler splashes about
creating water diamonds

~~~

icicles…
little girl
shivering by the dying fire

~~~

red sand-
a gnarled branch rises
white amongst the brown

~~~

cliff-side –
tender saplings hidden away
amongst the rocks

~~~

purple mist
a painter sits with
brush flying over canvas

~~~

Waiting for feedback so pleeeeeease comment below =)=)=)
