Haiku

Haiku is a Japanese form of poetry that has three lines of 5/7/5 syllables and is untitled. The subject of a haiku is often nature, but occasionally not. It captures a feeling or an image. Modern haiku generally still embodies this form but allows for other expressions. 

 

Hummingbirds indulge
Nectar of tranquility
Lavender blooming.

 

Capped in cookie cream
Nature’s shades of gray
Rocky Mountain high.

 

Grass-filled rolling hills
Lined with trees whispering wind
Kansas calvary.

 

Song at four-thirty
Sound of morning birds chirping
Start of a new day.

 

Purple pops perfect
Blooms fade to shades of lilac
Summertime’s snowball.

 

Under the moonlight
Leaves loop as the wind whistles
A November waltz.
