Posts Tagged ‘writing Haiku’

Slide1

Most of my writing over the years has come after my meditations.  It is a free flowing writing that does not have form.  It is my inner voice speaking to me and it has been a wonderful way to remember the insights I had during my meditations.

I have joined a poetry group and the poets in this group write some stirring poems.  When I try to write in form, my poems seem a little stiff or forced to me. Then I came across Japanese Haiku.  Basho is a famous Japanese poet and I have some of his poems on my blog and people always love to read them.

So during our recent snow storms, I have been reflecting on spring and I wrote a few Haiku.  Haiku has 5 syllables in the 1st line, 7 syllables in the 2nd and 5 syllables in the 3rd.  Give it a try if you like to write poetry! I think it is fun!

Jane’s Spring Haiku 2018

Cluster of blossoms

Call to the awakening

New birth peeks out

 

Spring snow covers

Still Crocus waits in silence

My impatience grows

 

Buds before blooms

Cherry blossoms soon to grace

Snow tipped branch

 

A promise always

To return to love’s blooming

Upon a spring day

Happy Spring everyone!  We will be celebrating the return of our spring blossoms soon.

Peacefully, Jane
