Northern Earth laughing.
Snow-suckled blooms sashaying,
while South freezes over.

south sea eyes wink north
slow ships of equinox pass
fall waving at spring

Almost two pages already and I've read some fine posts so far. Thank you for that.

As was stated in the opening post, the rules for writing proper haiku is quite loose.

Some ideas:


Haiku in English is a development of the Japanese haiku poetic form in the English language.

Contemporary haiku are written in many languages, but most poets outside of Japan are concentrated in the English-speaking countries.

It is impossible to single out any current style, format, or subject matter as definitive. Some of the more common practices in English include:

Use of three lines of up to 17 syllables;
Use of a season word (kigo);
Use of a cut or kire (sometimes indicated by a punctuation mark) to implicitly compare two images.
en.wikipedia.org...


What is most accepted is that the syllables are 5-7-5:


A haiku is a non-rhymed verse genre.There are 5 syllables in the first sentence, 7 in the second and 5 again in the last sentence.
www.wikihow.com...


That shouldn't be the rule in this contest, though, so don't hold back on starring a poem because it doesn't fit the standard mold.

The only way we're going to get a clear winner is if everyone stars each poem they like... members, writers, moderators and ALL who enjoy reading these nifty little poems.

So, liberally spread your stars far and wide.

From walking through all the pain
Understanding love.
