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.

This is...

Carriages arrive.
Witches and undead spill out.
Halloween at school.

In strong defiance
of fall, Cosmos flowers dance
in the cool fall air.

Distant But Distinct

As the fiery leaves
fall off, a silence descends.
Winter approaches.

Hills on Fire

A rainy summer,
with a verdant bounty. Makes
for a fiery fall!

Still full of life he
died at ninety-five. Five years
away from his goal.

Am I better at
good cop or bad? No matter.
I have to do both.

My life's not perfect.
But it's better than many.
Should count for something.

Sure, I'm not perfect.
At least I try all the time.
Should count for something.


Some boulders you must
push till you find a slope they
will roll down themselves.
