Haiku is a Japanese form of poetry.
The poems are limited to 3 lines and 17 syllables.

5 on the first line,
7 on the second line,
and 5 on the third.

I try to write one Haiku everyday.
Most days I fail, but some days inspiration strikes.
Sometimes it gushes for days at a time.
You can never tell when something will touch your heart.

Thanks for spending a moment reading
Haiku from the Heart.

I hope you'll be back to read my words.

Saw a deer today
that looked both ways before it
crossed the street. How strange!

No... Thank You!

Grateful for some shade,
the weary traveler gives
purpose to the tree.

Far Away...

Wind blown seeds become
trees, never to return to
their forest of birth.

Winter dawn. The Moon
waits in the sky, hoping for
a glimpse of the Sun

Winter Sunrise

Bright winter morning.
Sun rising behind smoky
mountains, breathtaking!

Half an Hour

Coffee shop, a book.
A brief oasis in a
parent's busy day.

Through the Storm

"Dad, can you tell me?"
"Dad, I have something to say"
"Dad, you know what? Dad?"

Fury of the Many

Snowflakes trampled by
skis, boards, don't complain. But if
provoked, AVALANCHE!

Power of the Many

Snowflakes small, gentle,
delicate, unique, countless.
Silence large mountains.

Cold, harsh winters break
my branches. But my roots are
strong. I will survive.
