Haiku

I’ve been reading a book of haiku recently and I’ve really been quite moved by it. So I thought I’d try my hand at it. Here are a few that I wrote myself.

Cold winter evening,
Moon shines down upon dark lake.
Warmth flows from the heart.

Summer afternoon,
Blue sky, beetle, blade of grass,
Adventure for two.

Urban adventure,
Sweltering city summer,
Budding new friendship.

Rolling open field,
Magic in conversation,
Eternal in all.

City streets alone,
Lamposts only source of light,
Down memory lane.

These all reflect a significant experience I’ve had in my life and I hope that I have been able to capture the feelings of those experiences. If the mood captures me, perhaps I’ll write some more at some point. Or maybe it will be a one off experiment – who knows?
