Haiku

He sits, and waits

A whisper in the wind

For something special

Haiku

The Japanese art of Haiku poetry goes back to the 9th and 12th centuries. At my writing class this week, we practised our own attempts at Haiku, by using sets of images to inspire us. Most of the images were of flowers, greenery, exotic animals (such as cute baby elephants) and of water; lakes, ponds and oceans.

This is my attempt at Haiku from a photo I took of my local beach.

Haiku

He who waits, knows

The sound of rippled

water, brings laughter
