Weather It Haiku

Updated on April 6, 2016

allowing haiku

stimulate creatively

tell me a story

Weather it haiku or not? These are from a selection of my recent inspirations. I am finding that they tell my story (to me anyway) better than other avenues do at the moment. I hope you enjoy them and are inspired to write your own.

Guidelines

  • Haiku poems consist of 5, 7, 5 syllables in three lines.
  • The cutting divides the Haiku in two parts with a certain imaginative distance between the two sections. Line one and two should be different images. Line three brings the two images together.
  • Each Haiku must contain a kigo, a season word which indicates which season the Haiku is set. For example cherry blossoms indicate spring, snow winter etc. The season word isn’t always that obvious.
  • Try to write a haiku only about what actually happens to you.
  • Write when you have been deeply moved.
  • Keep it honest, simple, clear and modest.
  • Try not to explain, it should need no explanation.
  • Try not to express feelings in words, let the concrete action speak for itself.

 

thunder and lightening

a billy cobham moment

drumming up a storm

a black umbrella

flies from your hand, gentle gust

let the tears begin

 

had a haiku day

two hours in rain luckily

i was in a car

his bald head so red

he didn’t go to the beach

sun roof is open

 

dry windscreen wiper

contemplating a deep scratch

the sound of screeching

 

 

a blinding yellow

reflects from the fields of rape

hay fever abounds

 

saturday morning

in bright uk summer sun

hope it lasts this time

 

fox on the highway

chasing his dreams in spotlight

the sound of a splat

 

it’s saturday night

so dark so early so cold

put on your glad rags

      Hi Russ,

      How's your French? There's a book called 'Neige' by Maxence Fermine - about an aspiring Japanese poet who goes up to the mountains of Japan to be inspired by the snow. You will LOVE this book!

      Thanks, I like that, a restrained art of impressionaism. I haven't heard of Senryu, I'll look it up.
