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.

Conversations With My Parents

They, distant forest.
The wind brings their scents to me.
Me, earth. Miss their shade.

Conversations With My Love

She, ocean. Constant.
Her tides ebb and flow for me.
Me, earth. I stand still.

Conversations With My Kids

Kids, clouds. They float free.
Their words like raindrops, drench me.
Me, earth. I listen.

Water rushes by,
groaning with the weight of lives
and dreams swept away.

It's raining softly.
Seagulls circle overhead,
searching for shadows.

Tired but restless,
my mind turns to poetry.
Haiku helps me sleep.

Can't Stop? Or Won't?

Do rivers want to
stop and rest? Do receding
glaciers make them glad?

How I Learned Patience...

My heart racing fast,
I profess my love. She says,
"Slow down Romeo".
