My evolving project for 2013 and 2014 is to write and post here one poem each day.
We are all in need of being inspired.|
Purveyor of rhyme,
A friend, the troubadour; or--
The sensitive soul.
I find that if we lift our eyes just a few times each day, we will discover something poetic that might just touch our hearts.
Of course putting those emotions in a 17-syllable poem is another matter altogether!
A brief explanation of my style of haiku writing, though.
I believe in traditional haiku that must speak about nature and I try to follow the pattern of two lines exposing a particular scene and a third line making a commentary.
And as of mid-August, 2013. I've been experimenting with modern English haiku which doesn't require the stiff 5/7/5 pattern.
However, after my decision to continue the project another year, I have decided to use the haiku structure as a departure for "haiku-like" poems having three lines but not more that 17 syllables.
I hope to maintain poems with haiku-like souls.
Wish me luck!
