All the wonderful poets on hubpages have been giving me tips on how to get this haiku down right. Their advice is to keep trying. You don't have to tell me twice! So, here I go at practice, practice, practice. I know Japanese Haiku writes about seasons but I sometimes find it difficult to draw real emotion about a season. Seasons and weather are so much a part of our lives we don't often think how they can be linked to our emotions.

Spring bringing early warmth
Lighting young and old hearts and minds
With renewed hope

Lonely cold winter nights
Icicles forming in your brain
Looking for love's warmth

Summer sun shines
Glistening on dancing water
Waiting for clouds

My ponderings on seasons/weather.

We have so many emotions every day, changing all the time.

Emotions always swirling
Rising and falling
In the lonely heart

Tears stain
track marks
on clean cheeks

sleep brings
silence outside
with thought inside

This ends my current practice session. I hope these few little haiku's gave ou food for thought. I think it's time to move on to something else, read more about haiku and try again another time.

      It would appear my efforts aren't quite successful either!

      I dabbled briefly with Haiku. It became fashionable here about the 1970s, but it is a very Japanese art-form and it is difficult for poets writing in English to really stick to the Japanese form. I think for us it's best to stick with the 5-7-5 meter although that would add up to less syllables in Japanese. I gave up trying to understand it to be honest! Bob
