How About Haiku?

Day Three in the Poetic Asides Challenge.

I opened my gmail this cold, rainy morning, and found that my poetry prompt for the day was haiku. I can't help but smile. I have a special fondness for this form of poetry, and love the fact that anyone can write haiku. Even you!

So if you're reading this, I challenge you. Go check out the Poetic Asides blog, and try your hand at haiku. You'll find a quick five-point haiku overview, simple as pie. Who knows, you may surprise yourself.

In the meantime, here are some of my haiku offerings:

rain on my window
etches a transparent portrait
of my wistful gaze


spring breezes ruffle
feathers, fur, prey, hunter
she springs -- too late -- flight

a million green leaves
dancing in the wet wind
celebrate this day

Happy Spring everyone!

Oh, I love Haiku too... I haven't written any since college though, and I'm by no stretch of the imagination a poet.

Yours are lovely though TaunaLen. That first one just took my breath away -- the second one made me smile -- and the third one made my heart sigh.
