Simply Haiku: Part 1 - Life of Nature

By: Ymatruz | Filed under: | |


Heartfelt poetry thoughts in Haiku form.


"The only rule that I follow in poetry, is counting the syllables."

A poet counts syllables of his haiku - turns it into sonnet until it races with Wilde's longest prose.

Haiku is a three-line Japanese poetry containing 17 syllables written in 5-7-5 syllable pattern


crickets lay their eggs
maple leaves fall to the ground
squirrel hunts its prey.

***

musty air swings between woods,
deeply furrowed barks of giant Sequoia trees,
sound of possums – creepy night.

***

grasshopper leaping
when front door opens, a great
...opportunity.

***

callous atmosphere
drying my calla lilies
calling summer end.

***

red-flowered bee balm
hummingbird feeds sweet sugar
columbine jealous.
