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.

Under the Weather

My feet are freezing.
Ears burning. Can't sleep. Curse this
cold weather sickness.

Leaves in the Fall

"Me time" is close now.
Soon kids will leave for college.
Do trees think like this?

Two wild rivers meet.
They collide, contort, then merge.
Rhythm, flow, oneness.

Shifting Winds of Life

They'll blow you around.
Enjoy the journey, for soon,
you will be the wind.


It's wind in your sails.
Might stop. Stay high when it blows,
so you can go on.

Baby's Bedtime

Waves crash. Winds howl. Rain.
Slowly the storm passes by.
Rolling waves. Silence.
