Seasons (A Collection of Six Haikus)

February 17, 2010ishabelle

I notice that a lot of people are fond of writing Haiku. I, on the other hand, write poems about love and, sometimes, society. I think I have written Some Haiku before, but I don’t know where those poems are. I decided to write a Haiku today, just for the fun of it. I came up with one poem, but I felt like one Haiku was not enough. If I can come up with a 20-line poem anytime, surely, a Haiku wouldn’t be so difficult, would it? I tried to write more, and I finally came up with six Haikus. Enjoy, friends! 🙂

Summer’s almost here.
Children are all out, playing,
Having fun each day.


Rainy days are gone. The sun is shining brightly; The sky is now clear.

When leaves are golden,
The air is almost frozen.
Autumn has begun.


I touch the cold ice Falling from a cloudless sky, This winter, so cold.

Flowers all blooming
So colorful, they all are
Everytime spring comes.

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

Let’s go to the beach
And roll in the fine white sand
Under the hot sun.

    An imressive collection of haiku there, you should do it more often – they really conjure the imagery of the seasons. I especially liked the 3rd and 4th. Keep it up.

      thank you, IS… 🙂 haiku is tricky… it looks so simple, but it really needs a good choice of words… 🙂

    Beautiful, Isha. Haiku and senryu are my first love and favorite forms of poetry. I think it’s challenging to try and evoke emotion or create an image in seventeen syllables, and you’ve done it wonderfully. Please do more…

    Lovely poems, woman! Haiku is great for paying attention to line breaks and rhythm, making every word count. I love how you use these inseries to bring us around the seasons. After winter, makes me long for the beach.
