My Haiku collection of seasons.
Unrhymed Japanese poetic form. It consists of 17 syllables arranged in three lines of 5, 7, and 5 syllables, respectively. The form expresses much and suggests more in the fewest possible words. It gained distinction in the 17th century, when Basho elevated it to a highly refined art. Haiku remains Japan's most popular poetic form and is widely imitated in English and other languages.


On a personal note,I had a 2 year bout with writers block(in 2010) and thought,"I'd never write again". My sister wanted to help me and asked " Why don't you try and write Haiku?" I had to Google it to find out what it was! In the end,she DID help me,as that day I wrote my first (not last!) Haiku. Hope you enjoy them,as I do!

Summer sun blazing

Waiting for rain clouds to come.

Bringing cool showers.

Silently snow falls

white blanket covering night

The day melts away
