Haiku Story

relate the story

a pocketful of poems

or just one haiku

awakening world

beautiful twilight shadows

on my way to work

stirring emotions

it’s not easy to forget

you’ve been on my mind

seeing you again

even after a short while

makes me smile

disruption within

is this all because of you

who am i fooling

 

view obscured by night

winter darkness rushes by

on the train again

listening to music

helps me to escape my mind

it’s my heritage

i’m lost without you

i wouldn’t know where to go

my trusted satnav

seasons come and go

now valery’s a woman

listening to elton

keep tail lights in view

howling rain screaming past me

on the highway home

it’s getting colder

think i will get a girlfriend

keep me warm at night

Russ...Wonderful imagery, both verse and photos...My cat is giving me these funny looks as I quote your haiku aloud...

You have opened my morning day with your sensitive observations, setting a tone for my own reflections...Indeed, the " winter darkness rushes by ", unseeingly felt, but feeling snug in our cocoons of private thought...Hamba Kahla, my friend...Larry

Enjoyed these - haikus and a cup of coffee is a good breakfast although I'm a little concerned at your trust of the satnav....(;]

I always think of writing haikus but cannot get to do it, you have presented some excellent examples of haikus...

Hi and thanks Moulik. I find that the secret of writing haiku is to let them come. Trying to write haiku seems to spoil them for me so just to trust and let them emerge seems to do it. Give it a try and let me know. Regards, Russ
