Haiku is a very old form of Japanese poetry, written in the format of three lines and consisting of no more than 17 syllables (5-7-5). Japanese haiku usually has a seasonal reference.


Summer Evening by the Lake...

Fish swim in cool lake
Summertime love vacation
So tired in evening

Small fire evening nigh
Sunset reflects on water
Soon marshmallow time


Summer Stroll Through The Woods...

Deep shadows tall trees
Walking talking and looking
Lovers hand in hand

Giant trees about
Walk in woods universe large
We are so minute

Early morn birds sing
Leisurely stroll through the woods
With her what a view


Stroll Through An Alpine Meadow...

Warm alpine meadow
Vegetable garden thrives
Most do German speak


Hawaiian Sunset...

Hawaiian sunset
Colors reflect off water
Hear strains of music

Warm tropic breeze blows
A romantic setting sun
Love is in the air


An Alaskan Summer...

Glaciers very tall
Alaskan seacoast in summer
Ship rocks as ice falls

Jillions of skeeters
Canoe knifes through icy lake
Awe of Alaska


Morning On Cape Cod...

Fishing boats go out
Sunrise makes them silhouettes
Strong saltwater smell

Cape Cod morning fog
Two lovers stroll on the beach
Soon warmth with sunshine
