Haiku Poetry


>

This is my first attempt at writing haiku poetry. I will not be following all of the strict traditional guidelines that accompany this style of poetry. Instead, these will be my personal freestyle interpretations and notes.

Here's a list of a few rules that I will try to follow:

  • 3 short lines
  • 1 cutting word (still need to figure this one out)
  • 1 season word (simple enough)
  • no metaphor or rhyme (to me that's eternal pain)
  • have fun (an absolute must)




Chilly November breeze
cannot be stopped
our faces feel the cold pain








Bright orange sunrise
nourishes plants
repeatedly lost in the clouds








Summer oak bookshelf
collects dust particles
thoughtful roots died






>


Slipping down muddy slope
control has been lost
innocent victims are the crushed plants








Slippery fish jumps
seeks adventure
teases hawks sharp grasp






I will add many more, as they come to me.


Cheers,
Martin
