Every day my mind comes up with little bits of inspired poetry. I like to consider myself a poet, inspired by abstract concepts and ideologies, sunrises, full moons, nature, love, humor and life in general.

I have been contemplating opening this thread for some time now, and today the feeling just felt right. This thread is open to all who wish to share their Haiku’s, or to just chit chat and meet other poets. What inspires you to Haiku?

The Haiku
A traditional Japanese haiku is a three-line poem with seventeen syllables, written in a 5/7/5 syllable count. Often focusing on images from nature, haiku emphasizes simplicity, intensity, and directness of expression.

So here is my maiden haiku, made especially for you, ATS


Haiku of the day
Inspired enlightenment
Blooming with delight




Love,

Queen of the forest
she runs like a gazzelle-
beauty is her crown

a fabric that can't be touched-

The red kite flying
The class sits or is lying
They all go home with a smile.

Most entries here are Senryu´s(or not even) not Haiku´s.


Senryū (川柳?, literally 'river willow') is a Japanese form of short poetry similar to haiku in construction: three lines with 17 or fewer total morae (or "on", often translated as syllables, but see the article on onji for distinctions). Senryū tend to be about human foibles while haiku tend to be about nature, and senryū are often cynical or darkly humorous while haiku are more serious. Unlike haiku, senryū do not include a kireji (cutting word), and do not generally include a kigo, or season word.

Finding a calm path
through the forest of our souls,
not an easy thing.

I have a lot of friends who live in the area of today's severe tornado outbreak. Prayers to all of you! Stay Safe!

I hate tornadoes
When they come into your sights
Praying for my friends

I have a friend who lives in Washington Illinois, who is safe but says her town is devastated. Many people will awaken with today's sunrise and the reality will set in. My prayers go out and my heart breaks.
Reports saying it was an F4!

Terror strikes the heart
Canopy of destruction
Broken dreams tonight
