Amble out from love ~Issa

“Arise from sleep, old cat,
And with great yawns and stretchings…
Amble out for love” 
― IssaJapanese Haiku: Two Hundred Twenty Examples of Seventeen-Syllable Poems




From this article on writing Haiku: http://www.ahapoetry.com/haiartjr.htm

 

 

I’ll try the first three, compare, contrast and association.

 

 

A misting rain falls

Our child sleeping quietly

Now we can exhale.

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

 

Weeks of dislike churn

broken hearted news delivered

All wish to turn back.

 

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

Too much to be done

Too little strength to move much

Frantic work and full stop 

 


The rules no longer require 5-7-5 but I try to stick with that as much as possible. The moment will supercede, however.
