Another nice one... If I see enough of them, maybe I'll be brave enough to try... Terry

Terry to start off easy it's 5 syllables in the first line 7 in the second line and 5 in the third either 1&2 or 2&3 need to make a sentence and the odd one is to be a phrase obvious that it is by its self. The phrase should seem unattached but is obscurely.

Thanks for reading my haiku.Yes traditional haiku usually stick to 5/7/5 and with a nature element.But you can also do it with any syllables from 10 to 17(total) and also without some nature element:)

I was trying to help another Terry but I am not as well adversed at this as you. Would it be ok for me to send him to you for help in learning to do Haiku? I have been reading over our exchanges. You know you really are patient and kind man. Huggs TLee

Hey Elliott. I was wondering if you were going to stop by. Glad you liked it. Thanks friend for taking the time to review.

This one very good. Do you remember the movie where Kevin Costner was a golfer. And in the club house his girl friend bet that Kevin could put a ball on the floor and hit it out of the door over a handrail, but below the roof overhang and knock a pelican off of a piling on the other side of the club house pond. That is what I saw when i read it.

You are talking about Tin Cup I think and I hadn't thought about that when I wrote this. I didn't think now that you mention it that pelicans hung out anywhere except by the sea. In fact that is why I chose this bird in this Haiku to denote that it was a sea harbor.
