Buds of Spring
Spring Growth
dampened soil bursting
little faces of Spring growth
sheltered by God’s hand
- Rhoda Galgiani
Japanese Haiku Poetry Form is un-rhymed in "traditional" syllable counts of 5, 7, 5 in 3 line stanzas - The subject is about nature and usually brings much imagery into the poem...rg

How lovely! So well written. I keep saying I am going to have to try my hand at Haiku, but my responsibilities have just been over whelming. But golly it is nice to come here and enjoy your wonderful talents. I do love your page and you.
Love, Charlene.

Thanks Charlene - the Haiku is a great way for someone to start writing poetry. So expressive with just a few lines - one must remember though, the Haiku subject is always about Nature...rg
