Five * Seven * Five

Five. Seven. Five. That’s the typical length of a haiku. Five syllables make up the first line, seven make up the second, and five again make up the third. When you write novels, you have pages and pages to tell a story; in a short story, you have much less time, and in poetry, you have lines. I’m posting three haikus I’ve written that I like best. I hope you like them, and even more so, that I inspire you to write one of your own.

Haiku: Blizzard
White winter blizzard
covers moonlit landscape, still;
boots thaw by the fire.

Haiku: One with Venezia
Heels tap streets, click, click—
gondolier sings “Volare;”
charm bounces off walls.

Longing, A Haiku

Rain on the pavement,

Your feet striding down the street.

Longing to see you.
