The Sun - Haiku

Updated on June 21, 2012

The Sun

by

Dr. Darryl Winer



Oh, glorious orb

Now wrenching green from the earth

They’ve slumbered enough


In golden hued rays

Stroking and urging the land

Energy pours forth


Rays summoning life

Erupting orgasmicly

Plants come to attention


Verdant fields peer up

Vigorously drinking both

Cool water below


How could we not know

Within the minds of humans

The sun unlocks joy


Imprudent beings

Our lives and planet in sync

Heliocentric


Harvesting the sun

Our existence in balance

We vacuum up life


A globe suspended

In seasonal increments

Patient, marking time

Yearning for the warm caress

Brief, bright moment in the sun


Half the world in gloom

Forlorn souls on the dark side

A sputtering seep


Under its guidance

Our lives brought to fruition

In the light of day

      It would not be professional of me to diagnose you in absentia...

      "Intense imagination"? Really? I've read much of your stuff. "Intense imagination" is a stunning understatement.

      DW, I agree - those two pictures do give out this similarity vibe. I had a fleeting thought about it when I read the poetry the first time but then I decided that it's my intense imagination plays the trick =)

      Hello Beyond-

      Somehow, I knew a Sun haiku would find its way onto your reading list. Maybe it will help dispell some of the winter blahs your part of the world is in.

      I particularly liked the similarity of the last two pictures of the field of green and the field of people all soaking up the sun.

      Be well.

      Awe, DW, it's a beauty =) I think we are in sync. Definitely. I actually like it when you go Tanka way, it feels very much inspiring in the artistic way. I love your charming expressions and I feel this warmth and, um...I can see a Cheshire Cat smile behind it =)

      Perspycacious-

      Sometimes I find that I have to wrestle with some haiku (particularly the more emotional ones like my "Tanka on Death and Dying") and find the lower phrase (the last 7-7) completes the thought. Tanka also seems to have a one-two punch that I find not just useful but broadening and constricting at the same time. (Whatever that means.)

      Thanks again.

      Hi Perspycacious-

      The 5-7-5-7-7 is called Tanka. And yes, I did mean "seep". As in the dual condition of misty continuing rain and just tiny drops of sunshine.

      Thanks for taking the read and the comments.

      Why the two 7 syllable lines making a fourth and fifth line after a Haiku:

      "Yearning for the warm caress

      Brief, bright moment in the sun" ?

      And did you mean "seep" or sleep, in the line:

      "A sputtering seep" ?

      This poem is so inclusive of so much of the sun's significance in all of nature, and so well done, it seemed important to ask.
