Writer's Block: Sharing Haikus

The Japanese haiku poet Basho once wrote, "Old pond / a frog jumps / the sound of water." Try writing some of your own haikus about the little things in your life. A haiku generally consists of a five-syllable line, a seven-syllable line and a second five-syllable line. You can also use any combination of ten-to-fourteen syllables.
This was our lesson last week! I made mine with my seatmate, Jem!

This was our haiku:

1.On the grass it grows
The tulip sways with the wind
It's petals smiling

*Kigo: tulip

2. I sit on a shade
Of a lazy maple tree
As its leaves fall down

*Kigo: Leaves falling down..

Here is another Haiku made by me last June. This was the first Haiku that I have ever written

Trees in the summer
Gives off a breeze of springtime
Makes me feel happy

To see through my eyes
A wonder made by man's hands
Gives my heart's tranquil

Oh, my heart desires
For the future to see
This awe of nature

I was inspired by Bohol's Man made forest. This approximately 1 kilometer drive dates back to the '50s. I wish people would continue to make man made forests today :)
