Haiku II

"Graceful shines the sun,

Spreading its rays all around-

New saplings come out."


Haiku is one of the most important form of traditional Japanese poetry, where the poems are simple, small and not rhymed. It is nothing but a depiction of nature in its innumerable aspects.

Few simple rules for writing in this form of poetry are:

1. Three lines of verse consisting of five, seven, and five syllables.

2. Each haiku must contain a seasonal word, may not strictly be a typical one. For example: snow denotes winter.

P.S :  This is my second attempt at Haiku.


  1. you know it is all dark here and no sun, no light, no sunshine... your haiku made me feel it all is back.. :)
    Thats the power of words.. which can bring the light back to life :)

  14. I read haiku on some other blog oo but couldn't understand what it was..Thank you for making it clear.Would like to try my hand sometime...:)

  15. I like the name-->"Haiku".
    And needless to say, was good.
    Isn't it an experience in itself to see a sapling that your planted growing stronger day by day..till it becomes a tree.AH!


  16. About the pic:-

    It is as if amid the sprawling ,enormous canvas of pleasant green, the radiant shafts of the sun's rays in merry abundance glorifies a life- a Life being nurtured
    by the Creator. The Creator holds and garnishes the blessed Life in the radiance galore.
    The whole pic depicts blessedness-Otherworldly- almost bordering on Godliness.

    About the poem:-

    It just compliments the pic (and vice-versa) creating a Majestic aura.
    The poem utters the beauty of the pic in a picturesque manner.
    Heaven is no far , but just somewhere near, very near- The marriage of the pic and the poesia whispers so.
