HAIKU : my venture into a new world :)

"During every dark-stormy nights

My fragile boat keeps its old promise

With a rekindled new spirit."

I have heard about Haiku when I was in college. But never tried to write it untill Sameera tagged me do so. 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.

It is my first attempt to Haiku. And believe me friends it's a great fun writing one. All Thanks to Sameera...I ventured into a new world of poetry and enjoying every bit of it.
P.S : It is a wrongly done Haiku. :( But I guess you all will ignore it as I am just a beginner. From next time I will take care of the syllables.... I Promise :) . After all i am in the learning process. :P
Thnx for informing me Lena and Sameera :)

Now as per the tag rule.... i will tag : SPIRIT.
