Thanks Billy for your nice comment. I like any type of Haiku or poetry. I woke up yesterday and already had the first one in my head. Once I write one Haiku, they keep coming. So good for the soul. Great to see you friend.

Michael-Haiku is quite simple, yet it says so much in so little. I like to use the format of 5 syllables for the first line, 7 for the second and 5 for the last line. I'll be waiting for you to try your first. Once you try it, you will love it.

Hi Debbie and thanks so much! I felt the need to Haiku yesterday. What I love about Haiku is you can have all different themes. Whatever comes into your mind, makes a great Haiku.

Thanks for noticing I was gone Joyce-that feels really good to me. My sister's lab top died a month ago and now mine is on the fritz. I plan to go to Best Buy to have them look at it. I'm using my nephew's right now. I feel so sad when I can't write and it's great to on this week.

Hi teaches-goodness is it nice to be noticed and missed. It's been really hard not having my computer and I use my nephews whenever it's available. To me, writing is like breathing-I'm not as happy if I don't get to express myself.


Minnetonka Twin profile image

Minnetonka Twin 4 years ago from Minnesota Author

Aww-thank you so much kashmir for the votes and more. I just love writing poetry, including Haiku.

Beautiful haiku's, Linda!

I love them all, but this one rings a bell ~

Charming outer shell

Soul of the sociopath

Wolf in sheep's clothing

Every time I read something like this, I remember a certain punk confusing me in 2010 almost out of my blood group :( Since the very first day I saw him in flesh - and even before while we were still in Cyberspace - my gut feeling told me that he was a mental case. And yet, my heart was in control and even my brain tried to convince me that he was 'okay'.

I always have to state 2010, because in 2011 I've hosted another Internet-friend who turned out to be a wonderful guy and BFF.

Lovely haiku poetry, voted up to the stars :)

Minnetonka Twin 4 years ago from Minnesota Author

Dear Martie-It can be really scary to meet people in this world, especially over the internet. It is so easy for creeps to lie there way into our hearts because most of us want to take people at their word. So glad to hear you met a good guy friend, to renew your hope in humanity. I really appreciate you reading my poems and for voting up to the stars. Your awesome and I am glad were hub friends. I swear, I really am nice! LOL

Haiku is one of the types of poetry that I am drawn to more often than regular poetry. Only to read though, I still tried but could not write it. I liked this one.


Minnetonka Twin profile image

Minnetonka Twin 3 years ago from Minnesota Author

Thank you so much Examiner. I know what you mean about Haiku. To me, it says so much in so little words. I find it really relaxing and healing to write. Thanks for stopping :-)
