First haiku attempt…


dripping after the night
with tales
no sun or soul in sight




Instantly composed after reading this post on Write Tribe by Ruchira about Haiku. This is a first attempt I guess a rather naive one, but thats how we will learn won’t we? So lets see what are the reactions. πŸ™‚

    The verse is so beautiful, and layered, as those petals are πŸ™‚ Hiding some deep and wonderful sentiment. πŸ™‚
    Haiku (Gawd! Here the teacher takes over πŸ˜› ) usually comprise of three lines, with a syllable count of 5-7-5 πŸ™‚ Even without that stricture of syllable count and lines, your poem simply calls out to the soul. Lovely!

    I loved the idea of the flowers have a tale to tell from the night before, Hitchy. The technical stuff we are all catching up on – the imagination and creativity makes a big difference. πŸ™‚
