Haiku to You (#1 of More to Come)

Learning of the nearby ukiaHaiku Festival, definitely peaked my interest over something I had long wanted to investigate.  Haiku AND Ukiah — I like it already, just based on the wittiness of it all!  I have yet to actually go to the festival, or send in any entries, but a girl can dream, can’t she?

As I understand it, there are various rules and criteria for writing a traditional Japanese Haiku poem.  Of course modern times, and other cultures, have expanded on that tradition. The only Haiku rule that I seem to follow is to use the pattern of a set of three lines in five-seven-five syllable combination.  Here’s a wee example describing the beginning of my day today:

morse code on roof top
pitter-patter from Heaven
rhythmic dreams awake

morning noise loud roar
slipper-footed lightly step
daily news in sight

life beginning fresh
all the same but not quite real
eternal present

Is this part of the haiku 

by Maggie Begley?)

…It is if you pronounce it right!  🙂

I’m an amateur of course, being so, I have loads more where that came from, but just this one to offer you today…Wanna try your own?  Go ahead, it’s fun!
