Haiku-III


"Dandelion smiles
A disoriented smile
With the kiss of spring."

~~~***~~~


Haiku is one of the most important forms 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.

  1. Dandelion puff!

    Few days back I never knew these are dandelions! It's only when a friend of mine accustomed me of it's beauty that I learnt the name then...

    Good work and excellent Haiku as always. Ravishing !

    Though you might also like to try your hands in several other genres waiting for ur pen(wo)manship.

  9. Haikus... Remind me of the Latin phrase - Multum, in parvo.

    As the clichéd adage goes - beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder.

    Peace. Be well.
