Haiku Moods

Updated on April 29, 2017

I was recently inspired by Haiku Spring, a hub by Maven101 (Larry Connor): http://hubpages.com/hub/Haiku-Spring.

In his comments he wrote, "I usually write at least one haiku every morning, but publish rarely". What a great idea (but you write so well and I wish you would publish much more regularly!). That inspired me and I am now writing a haiku every morning and gathering those that instinctively come from a special place and touch me. Thanks Larry.

clouds surround my heart

seasons come and pass on by

empty without you

so i lose myself

in things i don’t want to do

hoping i’ll forget

billet-doux for her

hidden within the flowers

being romantic

lines below your eyes

your emotion is showing

it’s your mascara

will i handle this

more emotions i can tell

are winging to me

the weekends are long

the time drags by so slowly

now that you are gone

      I was lweraning haiku from a very adept haiku poet--still find them hard to do. Just recently learned about the senryu-- though there are many opinions and evolutons!! LOL

      I too tend to follow the muse and see what comes--don't do very much formal styles. But I do love the haiku for its evocativeness. One day I may get it right!

      Hi Mona, thank you so much for your comments. You are obviously well versed (excuse the pun) in haiku. Yes, I don't always keep to the strict rules. I respect the haiku form but rather let instinct create the style.

      Wonderfully evocative with potent feeling! Some verses remind me of senryu rather than haiku as they are about persons as opposed to strictly nature. Such a fine line betweent he two. Still the meaning and sentiment is clear. The photos are stunning! Shine on!

      Russ - you are a genius at this! Just love the haiku. And I agree with you that Larry should publish more - I also said so in a comment to him a while back.

      Thanks for the beautifully put together Hub. I really enjoyed it.

      Love and peace

      Hi Hotspur, my breakfast pen - I liked that. No the pic isn't mine unfortunately. That one is Microsoft clipart. Go well.

      Sad, poignant and simply, cleanly made. Hope your breakfast haiku pen continues to flow.! Oh and I'm curious is the last picture of Rio yours? - has great soft colours.
