Water Haikus

At the moment I feel pleasantly lost – I’ve no idea where my writing is going and that’s fun. Much to my surprise I’ve found myself experimenting with poetry and thoroughly enjoying it – so I’ve decided to have a go at some Haiku. As always I welcome your comments.

Murky grey skies
rain clouds waiting to attack –
Summer holidays!

New dress wringing wet
unexpected Summer storm –
umbrella at home.

The parched, arid land
cries out for life-giving rain –
prayer goes unanswered.

I’ve been inspired by some great blogs – Haiku My Heart and Haiku Heights where you will find links to some great Haiku poems.

    You are definitely a poet, Mike, and a haiku one at that! Your water imagery is so evocative; I can feel the vacationers’ disappointment, the woman’s distress, the arid landscape’s despair… Welcome to Haiku My Heart and hope to see you back this Friday!
