Lonely log on Beachy Head taken by Laura Crean

Today I thought I would attempt some Haiku poems.  I will not be sticking to the 5 – 7 – 5 rule but will be using the nature and seasonal themes and using 3 short lines to create a poetic image.  ideas I have kept in mind when constructing my Haiku poems are to perhaps have a seasonal word, possibly a couple of sensory images, the idea of a surprise ending and juxtoposing 2 ideas.

cloudy sky shifting

a lonely log

welcomes silence


a seed falls

the bird swoops

a squirrel sneaks in


spring sends showers

the tulip drinks

snow sends a frozen surprise


a tiger

long grass

hidden enemy


warm summer night

cool blue moon

long silent shadows


clouds in spring

warm breeze rises

rain turns to soft mist


fox in meadow

finds a daisy bed

owl exploring
