HAIKU

A Japanese poem of seventeen syllables, in three lines of five, seven, and five, traditionally evoking images of the natural world. Haiku are short poems that use sensory language to capture a feeling or image. They are often inspired by an element of nature, a moment of beauty or a poignant experience.  Haiku should always contain two juxtaposed ideas. The two parts are grammatically independent, and they are usually imagistically distinct as well.

1.The Solitary Bird:

“Flock has long flown south

A ripple in the still lake,

The lone bird flies off.”

 

2. A Careless Mistake:

“Herd of deer spied close

Twig snapped by careless paw,

The lion’s hunt yet on.”

 

3. True Identity:

“Snowflakes fall to the ground

Each one unlike the other,

All same in the snow.”

 

4. Autumn Leaves:

“Red, yellow, orange

Leaves fall together from trees,

Their green days long gone.”

 

5. Shining Sun:

“Thunder rumbles the sky

Lightning flashes to the ground,

The sun yet shines bright.”

 

6. Moonlight In The Dark:

“Dark, black, lonely night

Dull solitude everywhere,

 

7. Clouds:

“White fluffy cotton

Floating calmly in the sky,

Turn grey and shed rain.”

 

8. Pride:

“Feeling of supremacy

Top of ladder of success,

Pride will go before a fall.”

 

9. Failure:

“Heart-breaking failure

The Stepping Stone To Success,

Overcome to win.”

 

10. Death:

“Inevitable end

Dark blanket shrouding mankind,

Death is feared by all.”

 

11. Morning:

“Dawn of a new day

New beginnings, hopes for all,

Till night falls again.”

 

12. Time:

“Clock always ticking

Time and tide wait for no one,

Make the most of now.”

 

13.  Earth:

“The unique planet

Life-supporting and generous,

See Earth’s sorry state.”

 

14. Choices:

"Yes no, right or wrong

These choices are everywhere,

Few easy to make.”

 

15.  Hibernation:

“Squirrels hide their food

Bears hibernate in their den,

Prepare for winter.”
