Haiku Poetry

This is my first attempt at writing haiku poetry. I will not be following all of the strict traditional guidelines that accompany this style of poetry. Instead, these will be my personal freestyle interpretations and notes.

Here's a list of a few rules that I will try to follow:

-3 short lines

-1 cutting word (still need to figure this one out)

-1 season word (simple enough)

-no metaphor or rhyme (to me that's eternal pain)

-have fun (an absolute must) :)

Chilly November breeze

cannot be stopped

our faces feel the cold pain

Bright orange sunrise

nourishes plants

repeatedly lost in the clouds

Summer oak bookshelf

collects dust particles

thoughtful roots died

Slipping down muddy slope

control has been lost

innocent victims are the crushed plants

Slippery fish jumps

seeks adventure

teases hawks sharp grasp

I enjoy writing simple rhyming poetry that people can easily share with their loved ones. I live in Toronto with my loving wife and two curious, adventure-seeking daughters.
