Post 1 : Haiku A Day

Well, I’m sort of tackling WordPress’s 365 posting…. A haiku a day.  Bear with me as I attempt to learn the fine are of haikuing (yeah, I know that is probably not a word.)

Now, I’m a couple of days behinds, but I’ll make up for it by the end of the year.  Or I’ll post a couple of haikus a day.  Today you get two, so I will only be three behind.  Please, please comment if you know something about haiku that I do not put into mine.  I’m going off of guess work.

Oh, and all of this is coming from my Haikubes…..so please bear with me.

 

A Regret About My Romantic Life

My fantasy left

It went slowly through us

The touches are gone

 

 A Vision For Our World

A gentle fortune

Shines after the last thunder

Leaves us melodic

 

Even I’m not terribly impressed.  I guess right now it is more just getting the feeling out.  I hope to be more eloquent as time goes by.  I want to thank Jesse for his encouragement.  I might not have attempted this had I not seen his blog.

Signing off

  1. These are pretty good. Traditionally, Haiku is about the minute or sweeping detail of nature. They’re clever bits of word craft and so far you’re doing a good job with sort of sliding us sideways into the end of poem. I think of haiku as like… going straight forward and then at the last line, taking a step to the side without ever turning. Does that make sense?

    • Oddly enough, it does make sense, unitl I read my verses again. Then I lose it. But some strange way, I get what you mean by stepping to the side. Thank you. And thank you for that bit of detail about nature. I always viewed haiku as being more intune with things in nature, so it seems odd to write about none outdoors-y things. However, I may figure out a way to include that. And thank you for your compliments as well.

  2. These are both great! I wish you luck on your blogging journey. I’m no expert in the Haiku area either, but they’re fine in my book! You’ve made a follower of me! 🙂
    Cheers,
    Ray
