Finding Peace - Haiku Poem

Updated on December 29, 2014

How Do We Find Peace?

Freedom
Freedom | Source

Peace at Last


Oh, God, do you know

the magnitude of feelings

stifled, hidden deep


Never-ending search

Escape from ongoing hurt

Is there a way out?


Oh, the sweet freedom

Of at last leaving behind

Unbearable pain


One way to solve It

Scary, sweet, thank you relief

Best peace ever found


What is a Haiku?

A haiku is a Japanese form of poetry that generally describes nature. However, it's fun to use the haiku form for poetry about any subject.

Try your hand at creating a poem with the haiku method. The haiku is three lines, using five syllables in the first line, seven syllables in the second line, and another five in the third. Be as descriptive as you can to describe the topic you have in mind. See what you can do with it! I've written several haiku that are only three lines long. However, others I've added several more stanzas with the 5-7-5 structure to make the poem longer.

I've published several haiku hubs, as have many of my fellow hub writers. Check them out for more hub enjoyment! And perhaps try your own hand at haiku.

      I have published and unpublished this one a few times. I think I've revised it enough for now. Time to let it go....

      Awesome, Vicki! Haiku has always intimidated me but one day I will give it a try. I just hope to write one as beautiful as this. Finding such peace is a struggle but the peace is sweet once found as your haiku says.

      Poetic Fool--I'm glad you like my haiku. I think you sell yourself short, though. You have such a poetic way with words. You should try your hand at a haiku! Go for it! :-)

      Haiku is elusive,takes a lot of work as well. This is well done.
