a crown of cold clouds obscures a peak far too proud ~ mount indifference the muse will not land words just can not understand~ judgement's rough offence A lush valley calls Free of harsh, barrier walls~ and haiku defence winged lines soar, now wise sweet poet gave us . . . sunrise bright, choral incense
Haiku can rhyme, have alliteration, personification and even punctuation. A genuine thank you to Poet Destroyer for giving poets who would otherwise feel daunted by haiku the freedom to think outside the box and try something different. Thanks, PD. This one is for you. :-)

sea’s hidden jewel . . .

sand’s grit becomes a smooth pearl

oyster suckles gem

*Not for some uptight, lord-of-the-Haiku, my-way-or-the-highway, There-is-only-one-right-way contest.  Just 'cause!

Some people have haiku issues, CHILL! 

I don't usually snarl, but now, really, come on!

Clear rivers of life 
will flow through this handsome place 
Colored with true love

Butterfly Words Haiku Medley

The word butterflies
Flitting past the paper net 
Illusive to me

I open my heart
Showing them my thought flowers
Enticing them in

I catch every one
Feed them from my soul’s nectar
They fly now to you.

Open your heart wide
Give home to my butterflies
My love’s on their wings

More about haiku. 

I was interested in learning about MODERN haiku and did some digging around tonight. Here’s basically what I learned. Haiku has and is changing.

Here are some haiku poems published in magazines. I enjoyed each of these and thought I’d share them with you. Note that they do not follow CONVENTIONAL haiku format, some use PERSONIFICATION and each, to me, are just gorgeous. These are recognized as true blue haiku. 

DO NOT LET ANYONE TELL YOU THAT HAIKU CAN ONLY BE WRITTEN ONE WAY or to tell you, “You can’t do that. Haiku doesn’t…" 

The magazines listed below also have great articles about English haiku. Great reads, all! They push the haiku envelope!

Read the haiku below and tell me what you think? Are these haiku or NOT? The editors of these recognized magazines thought so, and who am I to argue with them?

its small leaf

disturbs the shadows

giving themselves up

morning tea 
sunlight rests on the chair 
we still call yours

half of her
on half of him

red sunrise 
a taste of the campfire 
still in his beard

Broken (Haiku)

The battered rose lay, 
sorely strewn upon the earth, 
as lifeless beauty
