Seasons in Haiku

24 Mar

A Haiku is a a form of Japaneese poetry with 17 syllables in three lines structured such that the first and the third lines have 5 syllables and the second line has 7 syllables. There are several varieties of Haiku which have evolved over the years. Our dear Megzy has already mastered the art and I am a huge fan of her Haikus.

I was sorting some of my photographs when I thought of putting up a picture and writing a Haiku for every season. Here is the end product of my attempt…

Winter (View from my apartment after a snow storm)

Winter’s spell – warm barn,
snow capped hills and chilly breeze.
Calm in still white peace…

Spring (Sunset from my apartment just after a rainy spell)

Spring’s blossom – cheery bright.
Witnessing nature’s delight.
an engrossing sight…

Summer (Dry and parched Grand Canyon)

Summer’s fury – harsh heat.
The Sun mercilessly blazing,
noon shadows gazing…

Fall (Colorful & fiery leaves at Bear Mountain, NY)

Autumn’s gift – misty milieu.
lapping water, warmth in the sky,
leaves – colorful n dry…
