Blogathon Haiku Day 2012

Today is Day 21 of the Word Count Blogathon and the theme is HAIKU!

This style of poem, which you can learn about here, is composed of 17 sound units
divided into three parts - one with 5 units, one with 7 units and another with 5 units.

Here is one I wrote in Calligraphy for my pen pal:

Here are some I wrote today while I waited an hour at the DMV:

I love my haikus
They roll off my mind like wheels
Spinning in control

Poetry is life
A writer's means to speak it
A reader's glimpse in

Visual headlines
Written thoughtfully to see
What I am feeling

Haiku anywhere
Sitting in the DMV
Waiting to be called

It's 5-7-5
All it takes to come alive
In the haiku world

Spinning, twirling free
The sun shining down on me
Day after eclipse

The moon blocked her face
We poked holes through paper plates
The same as sixth grade

What a day it was!
I wrote a meaningful blog
And changed perceptions!

Today is a new day!
Full of opportunity
And love in my heart

Thanks for being here,
For reading the poems I write -
An eclipse of mind.


Some of my favorite haiku posts from the past:

Numbers and weekdays
Mix so nicely in my mind
Imagine, Twosday.

Spiritual toys...
Play with them every day
and watch your light grow.

I see the word "love"
On the phone pole in the street
Just as you call me

She finds prince charming
Only exists in her books
But keeps believing

A moment to think
Of a thing called
love, in ink
How shall I write it?

Karma maniacs

Cashin' in and styled out

On universe gifts

Aren't you curious
To know and live God's purpose?
It's why you are here.

Relax and enjoy
Trust that he has brought you here
To show you the way

My Favorite ALL-TIME Haiku:

Honest to a fault
I wear my heart on my sleeve
Like a truth tattoo
