Seasons: haiku


Spring: Haiku
Life awakening
Flower opens in the sun
A world is reborn

Summer: Haiku
Warm sun on the ground
A flower growing stronger
Life under the sun

Fall: Haiku
Darkening Shadows
Flower drifts to gentle sleep
The world is resting

Winter: Haiku
Blankets of cold white
Flower hidden from the cold
Life waiting for spring

    I like them. It so so nice to see that poets still acknowledge the traditional form in more than just the syllable count. Beautifall images. (Report) Reply

    There is one line in it that has eight syllables instead of seven, it's the Fall Haiku and the second line. (Report) Reply
