Seven haiku

DSC_0020

Haiku is a form of play, just something enjoyable to pass the time, especially for an insomniac. This is a crop from wee hours.

I.
From the beginning
Your sweet smile could rock the world
Outshining the stars.

II.
Power is not best
Used to beat down people’s lives,
But to raise them up.

III.
Kind words are a balm
Angry ones stir up rancor
Causing faults that break.

IV.
When joined together
Even tiny efforts can
A difference make.

V.
Given a puppy
A person learns love’s real worth
Finds true compassion.

VI.
All cats may possess
Nine lives, but eight are spent in
Trying owners’ souls.

VII.
Given words, wordsmiths
May spin an arc to span worlds,
Creating hope, dreams.

Now it is time to try this, remember the lines count 5-7-5 syllables. Just let the mind wander and feed the words it wishes. It is not hard. Pretend it is something done forever and maybe it will be easier.

Thank you for visiting Haphazard Creative. I hope you enjoyed your stay and found something encouraging and inspiring. There is a follow button, use it if you would like. Come back soon, and keep creating. Take care and be safe.
