HAIKU # 1


Worth living is life
when the night flower bloom
moon is hidden within
the breast of cloud

    Interesting composition. But the format is NOT that of haiku! Haiku has three lines, usually with a 5-7-5 syllable scheme. Haiku is the most difficult format of poetry to master (I myself am not good at haiku) . Haiku is a form of meditation, which requires years of practice for perfection. Each of the three lines should evoke a distinct image connected through a very subtle thread.... With devotion and practice, the above poem can be converted to a nice haiku. Good effort.
