Haiku - Hide and Seek

Updated on March 24, 2017
Source

Sun, a source of energy shining day after day never fading in its glory.

The following are haiku about the glorious sun rising at dawn turning night into day.


sunsets darkness grips

taking hold shadowing day

light fades slips away


playing hide and seek

sun rays emerging takes flight

night turns into day


sun rays filtering

branching trees leaves imprison

golden drops of sun

      I like gook haiku, but so much I see isn't very good, as haiku,- though it might be quite good, just as poetry. The form of haiku is quite specific, not only of form but of subject content.

      Yours is good on both counts, in my humble opinion. The subject is perfect and you've given the form your special touch without overstepping or defying its own.

      Voting up and beautiful.
