What it's like being alone - Haiku poem about loneliness
Will my ears explode?
Noiseless, not even a fly…
Deafening . . . I am . . .
(Now, that poem made me feel a bit like my fave . . . Emily Dickinson.)
April is National Poetry Month!
Celebrate National Poetry Month by enjoying haiku. This poem utilizes that style. Although haiku generally focuses on descriptions of nature, it is okay to use the basic form for other topics. Your first line should consist of five syllables. Your second line follows with seven syllables. Your third line goes back to five syllables. That's it. You can stop at one stanza or add more. Try writing your own or finding more haiku to read and enjoy. #9
