My First Haiku

Stillness sits between

Beauty hides in the crevice

Green backdrop of life

Blessitude

I’m contemplating erasing this because I have “fear” trying a new form of poetry.  Admittedly,  this is brand new to me and I’m not even sure I am doing it any justice.  But I have decided that I won’t let fear rule my life.  So I will apologize if I have not done the form justice…and I welcome any comments as to why.

  1. don’t fear new forms. you did a fine job! I wrote my first haiku when I was six…what frightened me, in high school, we had to write sonnets. All I knew was haiku and I was soooo scared. My poem wasn’t good, but it taught me a different style, a new perception, and discipline. I don’t regret it! 🙂 If you are interested and have time, I have quite a few haiku on my website. As you are new to this, I think it would be interesting on your take on one or two.

    1. Absolutely! ! I will get over and take a look…This is exciting 🙂 Thank you for the support…we really shouldn’t fear new things…but it is okay that we do. The fear usually gets erased as soon as we do it…and it didn’t seem that bad! Blessitude!

    1. Thank you so much Laurie! 🙂 Yes..structure…scary! It may be something I try more of…my other poems have no structure at all so maybe this will be a nice balance! Have a great weekend 🙂

  2. I love love love this haiku!! 🙂 It is beautiful! and like all haikus it also carries within something mysterious, something more than the obvious beauty. It is shining from both inside and outside. It is like a gorgoeus red and yellow autumn leaf floating on a river, beautiful to behold, and carrying with it the whole story of a life lived, of a tree, and a another river bank 🙂
