Happy National Haiku Day!

Today is National Haiku Day!

And so I will share
A post written only in
Lines 5-7-5

Haiku are meant to
Evoke an image: Thunder
Clapping in darkness

Simplicity. All
Excess has been removed. Cut.
Leaving clarity.

My kids treat each day
as a gift. When night comes they
Hang on til the end.

Rest. The less beloved
gift each day brings. Sweet silence.
Another day comes.

Can you fit a thought
Into haiku? The image
may not want to fit.

I’d love to see your
example haiku poems!
Artful. puzzle. fun.
