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.

The New Peer Pressure

Am I being followed?
Does that push me to be more?
It's Twitter pressure.

Tweet, Tweet

Hello fellow bards!
Twitter helps me find many
haiku fans like me.

To Be Human

Stopped at a red light
I saw her crying as she 
walked by. Made me sad.

On the Shoulders of...

Grass, vines, undergrowth
unseen nurturers of the
forest floor. Trees soar.

River, Mother

Jagged mountain rock, 
carried, polished, transported 
into adulthood.

Torn Social Fabric

Economic drought. 
Hopeless people pan-handle, 
stripped of dignity.
