Haikus From the Heart
Writing poems is passion and I have a separate poem blog, but recently my interest is to write Haiku’s. A Haiku is a form of Japanese poetry that has 3 lines. The first line is 5 syllables, the second line is 7 Syllables and the last line 5 Syllables.
I write a Haiku a day, just for the fun of it and share some below:
¸.·*☆ Haiku 1
Children are Angels
to be Loved and not Tortured
Abuse - Filthy gain!
(There is an alarming increase on Child Abuse and it's painful to hear about / read about on the News).
¸.·*☆ Haiku 2
In the Nick of time
Everyone left, you walked in
Angel in Disguise.
(I wrote this on reflection of people who have stood by me through challenges).
¸.·*☆ Haiku 3
I'll have my cake and eat it
Sweet tooth, my weakness.
(One of those moments when I craved cakes and chocolates. You probably do too?)
¸.·*☆ Haiku 4
Open heaven’s door
Show me a glimpse of your smile
The heart finds comfort.
¸.·*☆ Haiku 5
Gone Since Forever
Angels gave her no Notice
Heart cries “I love you”
(This is for my beautiful Mum. I wrote it because I miss her so much).
¸.·*☆ Haiku 6
Piercing the darkness
of the thoughts inside his head.
(I wrote this for teens. Many hear “voices" in their head telling them to end it all. Sadly, some do but some are fortunate to have a friend/family member talk them out of it).
¸.·*☆ Haiku 7
Haiku 7 - I had such a hectic time this week and put my feelings in this Haiku. Written on Friday evening. (◕‿◕)
If you want to keep up with them, type #HaikuLE on Twitter. It will search and bring them all up on a page including any new Haiku's I publish on Twitter.
