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.


    • hello, th… thanks for the comment… πŸ™‚ im glad you liked those two haikus… πŸ™‚

  2. ahh…the beauty of the seasons’ transitions. i love each season and I am usually ready for each one to come just as the previous one is leaving. well, to not have written a haiku in a while i sure can’t tell. well done!


    • thank you, IS… πŸ™‚ haiku is tricky… it looks so simple, but it really needs a good choice of words… πŸ™‚

  3. Way to go girl!!!
    I really like them.

    I am still breathless from my workout. lol


  4. i’d be more than happy to join…. however, im still currently at work and blogspot and livejournal are restricted here…. i won’t be able to visit your blog until i get home this afternoon… πŸ™‚

  5. great job, fresh and insightful!
    sun, fun, beach, rain, ice…
    they are sense making and remind me of life’s seasons..

    • thank you, jingle… it means a lot to get that kind of compliment coming from a poet like you… πŸ™‚

  6. thanks for the dash of warmth…notice a few of these are about summer…fueling my desire for warmer weather. nicely done.

    • you’re right.. our summer here in the philippines starts in April… I can hardly wait… πŸ™‚

  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.

    • thank you for the comment, ray… im glad i was able to take you on a trip via your imagination… πŸ™‚
