Four Seasons Haikus


Hustle and bustle
The birds and bees get busy
Vivid gardens blush

Sun beats down harshly
Upon crowded sea and sand
Roasting pale folks brown

Autumn leaves rustling
Kicked up by mischievous kids
Playing in the wind

Frosty bites, merely
Kisses of snow from Heaven
Winter wonderland

Poet's Notes about The Poem

It was initially meant to be four separate haiku poems, but I decided to string them together to from one complete seasonal cycle. It portrays 'photographs', one from each season, represented by each stanza. The stanzas adhere to the 5-7-5 structure of Haiku poems. Enjoy!

    I really liked enjoyed them, especially the third and fourth ones. Im my humble opinion (I don't pretend to be a great poet) , the third is the best. Have you checked websites on haikus. Wikipedia's page in this regard was of great help to me! What about tanka (5-7-5-7-7) which gives us more scope and space? I'll read all of your haikus. We can keep in touch! I'll try to translate some of your poems in Greek! (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
