Leaves rustle gently

  1. You write haiku so well ๐Ÿ™‚ Hugs xx


  2. i have posted a comment in this post in the morning, what happened to that?

    your haikus are splendid.


    • I’m glad you are enjoying my haikus. I want to see you write some! ๐Ÿ™‚


      • most probably you will never see me writing a haiku. first, i dont clearly understand their rules, second there are too many rules.

        by the way, what are the strict rules for writing a haiku?


      • OK, Trisha–listen carefully, because you can so do this very easily! Here is what I read about haiku and the rules. If there are other rules, I don’t know them.

        I just go by this description: Haiku is a type of Japanese poetry which presents a clear perception of nature. A haiku poem is three lines in length. The first line is five syllables, the second seven syllables, and the third is five.

        Easy peasy! Only three rules! With your talent for nature-themed beautifully worded poetry–this will be a snap for you. ๐Ÿ™‚


      • three rules for three lines, hmm, gotta think.


      • Well just practice and see what you come up with. You may be surprised.

        I’m just playing around with this style. It’s fun to try. If you should read some very good haiku from experts, you will see how amateurish mine are–but I am having fun anyway. ๐Ÿ™‚


      • i think yours are amazing. i rarely compare works of two people. i prefer reading them individually.


      • Well, as you know, you have now written your first haiku and it was so descriptive and beautiful. I knew you would be good at it. I look forward to seeing more from you. ๐Ÿ™‚


      • Oh, I forgot to say thank you, Trisha. I’m happy that you are enjoying my poems. ๐Ÿ™‚


      • writing haikus is very playful. ๐Ÿ™‚
        i can assure you you will be seeing more of them. hope you wont be scared in future.


      • I knew you would get hooked if you figured out how to do it! I look forward to all the haiku you can write–enjoy yourself. They are very playful poems. The way they are written can be quite clever.

        I won’t be scared. ๐Ÿ™‚


      • I have read some truly outstanding haikus. haiku writing can be an art in itself.


      • I have read some outstanding haiku too. I want to write outstanding haiku–I’ll have to delve deep and go into the “haiku zone”!


  3. my mistake, i commented on the one below. sorry. ๐Ÿ™‚


  4. You most certainly have the gift of haiku. Am enjoy this collection. Nice work here.
