April is National Poetry Month - Do You Haiku?
Julia at Diary of a Word Nerd reminded me that April is National Poetry Month. I haven't been finding any new and interesting words in my reading of late, so I decided to share this one for my entry in Bermuda Onion's Weblog 's Wondrous Words Wednesday meme.
haiku : an unrhymed verse form of Japanese origin having three lines containing usually five, seven, and five syllables respectively; also : a poem in this form usually having a seasonal reference —
Since it is Cherry Blossom Festival time in our nation's capitol and I heard that they had rain on Tuesday I am sharing the following haiku I found on a site called Suburban Haiku.
cherry blossom rain
sound of a love song passes
with the traffic
— Dawn Apanius
These are two of about 20 that were on that site when I logged on yesterday. This one made me grin!
Blossoms open up –
stop the presses, some good news
unfolds in D.C.!
— Melissa Romero Fortner
Have you ever written haiku or any other form of poetry? I have written rhyming verses, not actually poetry. I think I will give haiku a try.
Until next time
Stay Busy and Stay Happy
