Poetry Friday: A haiku kind of day
Wow, where does the time go? Last Friday, I was thinking about what I might share this Friday…and here it is, Friday already!
With winter hanging on like it has, I’ve had nature on my mind – and the haiku form is perfect for taking little tidbits of the natural world and showing them in a new or different light. The thing I like most about haiku is the last line, which should be a surprise or a unique observation about the previous two lines. Here’s what I’ve been writing lately:
sweep me away in a form
of sea-foam sorcery
night birds sing
of love and longing as the forest
