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.

A majestic tree,
cut down by the cruel axe.
Rests then sends up shoots.

Though it's buried deep,
the seed still sprouts and struggles
to reach for the light.

Wind. Thunder. The rain
argues loudly with the roof.
My house stoic, strong.
