When I first started out on this site there weren't many haiku writers. When and if someone actually took the time to write and post one, more often than not it would be noticed by the majority. So here is a little thread for haiku's on any subject. Haiku writers, come along and post as many as you humanly can. People who want to try something new are also open to try (5-7-5 syllables)HAVE FUN :D

Solitude is me
stranded across an ocean
without my rudder.
Silence is when you
whispering your soft kisses
of love and summer.
As nature destroys
its children rejoice with glee
for it also builds.
Peace is harmony
when all nations are peaceful
then all is perfect.
I cannot believe
that I am alive and well
while my brother dies
Is god not inside?
Within each creature is light
that defeats the dark!

All not saved will be lost.

*Dang, y'all really got into it. Penelope, how do you come up with such beautiful words? Emaks, always happy to please you, and the rest, good job*

Destiny pathways
arching as I walk away
from love and freedom

I cannot love you
for I believe not in fate
I make my own way

Destiny pathways
the stars light up my darkness
as I fold within

I cannot love you
I will never be forced
towards another

Destiny pathways
crawling before my footsteps
I could just follow...

Haiku thread
My problem being that, with haiku, as with so much else in life, I was unable to stop at just the one. It went on and on and on and on and... you get the idea. Sorry to sully the thread with such a torrent of bollocks. But, you did ask.



We weep to mark time
Measure the sea ‘gainst our tears
Traverse together



We met under silk
‘Neath bowers of lingerie
You wore a winged smile



Your soul ran errands
Fetching faith back to my heart
One kiss at a time



Scissors of stained-glass
Cut you in to gold quarters
Fractured and shining



Today we’re even
One disfigured heart a-piece
Flames between us both


#6- 9/ Bill

You crept and crawled back
In your carrion colours
Come to pick her bones

Black, tarred and feathered
Ink-winged bastard, butcher bird
A blade for a beak

Perched on the barbed-wire
Circling the hospital roof
Wheeling and keening

You come here again
I’ll raise Pa’s rusted rifle
Cast wings in singed arcs


#10-14/ Sugar

Coaxing me to cry
Tempting me in to feeling
Head on your shoulder

Daring me to laugh
Transfigure my mouth with smiles
Head on your shoulder

Love me back to life
Under crumbling masonry
Head on your shoulder

One day you’ll see it
The future you gave to me...
‘Cause we’ll both live there

AMG, I love this one. It is so much of what I'd like to write, simple and complex at the same time. Keep the writing girl, stay on it!

Feather-light teardrops
falling atop parted lips
as we part our ways.

Haiku me?
How hard can it be
to find the light at the end
of God's bright tunnel?

Just taking one look
can open your world to truth,
so come on inside!

[I thought of this haiku on the spur of the moment; now I think I will take it to church with me. Maybe it could become the mantra of the youth department...?
I kind-of surprised myself since I'm generally not a syllabic type of person (just a sesquipedalian). I hope you like it, Siah!].

{yeah, I do like your haiku, especially the first one. Hey girl, when you going to post your poetry again? 10 days is awfully long for you}

Family of poets,
your words inspire me to write,
but what inspires you?

Haiku thread ( the return of)
loved the kites, specially the last one. I can't stop writing the frigging things now. And I have no idea where I was headed with these or what they even mean. Anyway, heads up.

We are white flowers
That shed their petals clockwise
This is how we cry

We are white cockerels
That, careless, cast our feathers
This is how we cry

We’re pale and bare-foot
We’re winding in white saris
This is how we live

Above winter clouds
shimmering globules and stars
hang in the dark night.

The Sirens sing songs
of snakes slithering silent
through sweet seduction.

WOWOW! Pen, like Shannon, I too love your kites collection of haiku! Makes me look forward to September when I can fly kites again with the kids! (Didn't I write a kite poem too?)
