      Haiku- always fun to write! Di you mind if I use this as an example in the classroom. The children absolutely love doing this, but sometimes like everything else, the better the examples........ the more understanding they are of the concept. Thanks for this ! Kaie

      maven101 6 years ago from Northern Arizona

      Very nice first effort...Simple, direct, and expressive...This is a different " haiku " than most other forms that require a certain rigidity of syllabic expression...Although it lacks the disciple of construction it conveys an immediacy to the poems' intent...I enjoyed reading this aloud, with your implied emphasis...Thanks for sharing this with us, I am looking forward to more of the same...Larry

    • lisadpreston profile image

      lisadpreston 6 years ago from Columbus, Ohio

      What I find so beautiful about this poem is the raw honesty. My pride would never allow me to tell a man I am in love with that I need him, want him, or tell him to turn around, come back, or return. Although some have commented on the simplicity of the few words so directly put, I find the reality of what was said, to be extremely complicated. These words could only be uttered by a woman that is self assured, confident, and willing to risk all (emotionally) for love. You are an incredible woman. It saddens me that a woman of my age is either not brave enough or has never loved enough to utter such basic and simple words to a man.

      Hi Lisa, thanks for your candid comment. My man is a ferry pilot and I am never sure he will return safely as his job is not without danger. I think this is where the raw emotion comes into play. PS there's always time!

    • lisadpreston profile image

      lisadpreston 6 years ago from Columbus, Ohio

      Without knowing this, the poem could be interpreted so many different ways. As poetry often is. Knowing this about you and him gives me a whole new perspective and it is even more beautiful. None of us know if our loved one will return. I lost my husband 3 years ago, suddenly. I know the fear you feel. You at least get to say these words to your husband. I never got the chance and now I never will. Thank you for the explanation and my wish is that he has a safe return home to you every time.

      Hi Juliette, of course, I wrote it for him. He was on a difficult ferry bringing a small plane back from the middle east which was hazardous to say the least! Thankfully he returned safely shortly after he read this. It is hard to say the least, waiting in this situation. Thanks for stopping by

      HI, I love this! I think it is because I am getting the idea of Haiku now, before I just thought they were short but profound poems, but now I realise that the most important thing about them is that each word is meaningful, there are no 'waste' words, and that is what makes it so special great example, cheers nell

      nice poem, though im sorry to say that this isnt a haiku. a haiku is a japanese poem consisting of 3 lines, the first one 5 syllables, second 7, and then finally the third ending with five syllables. all in all this poem should have 17 syllables but it only has 16.

      73 Comments, so far, and you answered each one. As impressive as the poem was, I found that impressive, too! 22 feedbacks: awesome (2nd most) and beautiful (the blue ribbon winner.) It's surely nice when Hubbers take the time to click the feedback boxes, don't we know!

      Well that is a super comment Perspycacious! Thank you very much. I really appreciate it when Hubbers take the time to read and comment on my humble writing! ( I put that in as it sounds a Japanese type of thing to say after a Haiku)

      To write a good Haiku, requires a skill with words and imagery that not all posses. beautiful and up... and hidden within are so many levels and subtlties...

      Thank you for this,

      Michael
