Kathy's Haiku

Updated on September 22, 2010

Thoughts on Things

 

OBSERVATIONS and THOUGHTS

 

Wind whispers softly

Fall tree leaves gently respond

Autumn in Kansas

 

 

A sea of bright sunflowers

Beneath my window

Follow the sun east to west

 

 

Thunder and lightning

Flashing loudly in the night

Exciting display

 

 

Sparkling silver flash

Moves beneath tidal waters

Aluminum can

 

 

I wonder why, how and if

This magic exists

In fantasy and in life

 

K. Novelli

      Lucky, you're welcome. Those are the same reasons that I enjoy Haiku

      Thank you so very much, PDXKarokeGuy! I am honored. I enjoy Haiku because of the delicate simplicity of structure which holds within such an enormous possibility. I've always loved the little 'zing' of the aluminum can one. Thank you!

      My favorite one:

      A sea of bright sunflowers

      Beneath my window

      Follow the sun east to west

      And what is interesting is, each paragraph is a single uniform haiku, and all haikus are parts of the whole.

      Hi Victoria...I am originally from Ca..moved to SE kansas 2/07...moving back home to N. CA ...in the process which is taking a lot of back and forthing. Pluses and minuses for both 'lives.' but, I've made my choice to return home ..however, I have the animal sanctuary in Elk City and it shall remain indefinitely...Al and I will go back/forth to keep things afloat until we get it all worked out...

      I know we'd have a great time...I so relate to the content of your musings!!!! What part of Arkansas?

      Hey, Lucky Cats, when you say you're in California for now, what does that mean? Come back closer to Arkansas at some point, and we will talk to our hearts' content, huh?

      ..I love your new profile photo - reminds me of Andrew Lloyd Webber's Cats - is that you?

      And your writing is as fine as ever with these astute and perceptive poetic thoughts in your head.

      And I'm not gonna try and spell that 'syncopat' word again - lol lol
