Seasons (A Collection of Six Haikus)

February 17, 2010

I notice that a lot of people are fond of writing Haiku. I, on the other hand, write poems about love and, sometimes, society. I think I have written Some Haiku before, but I don’t know where those poems are. I decided to write a Haiku today, just for the fun of it. I came up with one poem, but I felt like one Haiku was not enough. If I can come up with a 20-line poem anytime, surely, a Haiku wouldn’t be so difficult, would it? I tried to write more, and I finally came up with six Haikus. Enjoy, friends! πŸ™‚

Summer’s almost here.
Children are all out, playing,
Having fun each day.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Rainy days are gone.
The sun is shining brightly;
The sky is now clear.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

When leaves are golden,
The air is almost frozen.
Autumn has begun.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I touch the cold ice
Falling from a cloudless sky,
This winter, so cold.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Flowers all blooming
So colorful, they all are
Everytime spring comes.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Let’s go to the beach
And roll in the fine white sand
Under the hot sun.

  1. An imressive collection of haiku there, you should do it more often – they really conjure the imagery of the seasons. I especially liked the 3rd and 4th. Keep it up.

  7. Beautiful, Isha. Haiku and senryu are my first love and favorite forms of poetry. I think it’s challenging to try and evoke emotion or create an image in seventeen syllables, and you’ve done it wonderfully. Please do more…


    • why, thank you so much… πŸ™‚ i am glad that you liked them… πŸ™‚ i will try to do more haiku, and i hope that you and the others will like them as well… *wink*


  8. Lovely poems, woman! Haiku is great for paying attention to line breaks and rhythm, making every word count. I love how you use these inseries to bring us around the seasons. After winter, makes me long for the beach.
