Several Short Poems

Haiku for All Seasons

Driving Home from the Wedding

Rainy spring morning

A wispy stole of clouds drapes

The mountain's shoulders

Summer Evening Serenade

A cicada sings

As the dusk fast approaches

Call the children in

Autumn Reverie

Bright yellow and orange

Crisp and glowing against the

Blue-grey thunderheads

Winter Bliss

In my comfy chair

Snuggled in a soft blanket

Warm cat in my lap


Write your complaints on the water's surface

Carve your blessings in stone

Rejoice for those who have good fortune

Help those who have none

If you have plenty or if you have naught

It's all about your attitude

Happiness is in your hands

Just live your life with gratitude.

I like them all, but your lines about writing your blessing in stone and your complaints in water resonated with me today.

You have made the seasons all sound good - and here I was dreading summer ending. But I do love a warm blanket at winter time :)

I like all of those. The Haikus mean something to me and I agree with Feisty56 about writing blessings in stone and complaints on water.

I appreciate your gratitude poem this morning...more than you know.

And I LOVE haiku. It, as a form, focuses me from time-to-time when I write.

I very much enjoyed your poems and hope to return to them when I have more time to appreciate them.

Nice work. I have a haiku. I call it "Haiku Haiku."

*clears throat*

Haiku. What the hell?

Seventeen syllables. What?

I don't think it's fun.


But, YOU did a good job. 😊

Ha ha! Well, clearly, not all poetic forms suit everyone. I get no love from longer forms, like the sonnet and the villanelle.
