Haiku to Go!

    Add your Haiku here – anything goes BUT

    Haiku is more than a type of poem; it is a way of looking at the physical world and seeing something deeper, like the very nature of existence. A haiku poem consists of three lines, with the first and last line having 5 moras, and the middle line having 7. A mora is a sound unit, much like a syllable, but is not identical to it.

    Some classic examples

    O snail
    Climb Mount Fuji,
    But slowly, slowly!

    Everything I touch
    with tenderness, alas,
    pricks like a bramble.

    add yours!

      Water is the stuff of life;
      Its mater and matter;
      Planet Water - our home.

      Calling over there
      To see if you are home yet
      But no one answers

    The Game of Go is about entrapment
    Its no go for your opponent
    Walling them off, nowhere to go

    Little mosquito
    Why is it that your name
    Seems to be Spanish

    Heavens, I haven't done this for years, but here goes:

    Copper hills brooding
    under louring leaden skies
    Winter waylays Wales

    A farewell missive
    dropped into its depths
    pebble in the seabed

    A new photo
    smiling with comprehension
    a different kind of smile
