For all who love haikus, like me. Post yours here.


Finding my way out
It was a long, winding road
That led me back here

I like to follow the typical 5-7-5 syllables rule for my haikus, but there are variations. :)

The calm wind blows by
Birds overhead chirp and sing
I sit here and think
The only lasting beauty, is the beauty of the heart. - Rumi

Today, like no other
Felt different but the same
I wish you were here


Y’all should post some of yours :)

Fortress of blankets
No real protection from harm
But for a child's mind
"If we have to go down, we go down together!"

Cup of hot coco
Blackened logs ablaze nearby
And the girl in arms
"If we have to go down, we go down together!"
- Your mum, requesting 69 last night.

Neither by lock nor key
Can I contain my joy now
A feeling of bliss

A ship stopped nations
In a river made by man;
Running straight to ruin.
