Haiku 3

sunken stars -
a duck dips his head
to catch one

    Very awesome poem. I thought of not only the scene of the duck, but the theme of people seeing a vision and diving for it..though it is only a vision, not necessarily real, its the drive that matters the most. Eh, I dunno why I thought of it like that, but that's what makes this poem so special. There is so many ways others can interpret it. I respect your poetry and I appreciate it. Thanks for sharing! Always, Laura

    There is much to learn from nature, and any revelation or lesson you can obtain from it is something to treasure. I admire your wide perception on things... I like to try and read deep into things... it's half the fun! Your comments make my day brighter :)

    I read in a comments once: "Haiku is a poetry form that people used when they had nothing to write about" - - I would rather say that a Haiku poem tells a lot with few words! - Well done Timothy! - oxox / / Anne-Lise :)

    You are correct! Simple words, big ideas.. that's how I think of them. Haiku is a fun challenge and they come to me at the most random times...

    Good morning Timothy, not only is this a lovely and interesting image... I wish to be the duck, diving in for the glow.. not only would i try and catch a reflection. I think I would hold on to a few wishes, I'm not good with haiku, but for some reason they seem to be my favorite poetry form. Sadly many poets around here do not think highly of them haiku. I like taking a guess at them, giving them different views. I like the mystery of the untitled.~ps~thank you for the kind comments~LINDA

    I like the way you think and totally agree with you about haiku being underrated. For me they have so much potential and is really great practice to learn how to say a lot with so few words.
