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.

Give AND Take

Rain brings soil to it.
And so engorged, the river
takes more from the Earth.

The tops catch fire.
The rest a bright yellow hue.
Pear trees in Autumn.

Initiate Shutdown Sequence

Haiku at bedtime.
Structured arrangement of words
preps the mind for sleep

Dull red, yellow, brown;
Fall's colors are fading now.
Winter is coming.

The River

As it rushes past
peaceful groves of grand old trees.
It yearns for their life.
