Forms of Haiku

Updated on March 8, 2013

Always Learning!

The other day it was raining. I was waiting in the car for my son who was in the store. As it doesn't rain much in my neck of the woods, I was waxing poetic on the sound and image of the rain. I decided to try my hand at writing haiku again. It's been many years since I have written them but Hubpages have inspired me to get back into poetry again. So I played around a little with some thoughts and came up with these. I hope you enjoy them!


the rain patters soft

gently on my car window

trailing down its sides


Friendship's a good thing

We love, we share and rejoice

in those we call friends

Let go

To enjoy the day

let go, embrace, luxuriate

'til its all you feel


Some have one request

to live alone in quiet

to be left in peace


Different Perspectives

we experience

differently, yet the same

each, another story

A New Day

So many moons pass

Befire we enjoy the light

Of a brand new day
