5979485

Annette Rochelle Aben who has published several books on Haiku, reminded us yesterday that it is National Haiku Poetry Day… National Haiku Day

You can find all three of Annette’s books. A Haiku Perspective 2015, PhoKu, visual perspective haiku, and A Haiku Perspective 2016. http://www.amazon.com/author/annetterochelleaben.

I have not practiced this art form very much and am a newbie but felt that I should at least make an effort.

Enjoy the day and thanks for dropping in..Sally

  3. That’s beautiful, Sally.
    I’ve no talent for any form of poetry, so I’m impressed. I never understood the technicalities of how it’s supposed to be (and naturally I “deleted” those files from my memory, so now I have even less idea). Every time I tried someone told me I was doing it wrong — particularly with haiku, which I especially like. I do know that I like this one. 😀 Mega hugs.

    • I’ve had that happen, too, when I had a haiku and picture reblogged. One person wrote several replies that I was doing it wrong. Over 100 likes later, I was imagining him as a miserable person sitting at home surrounded by his cats.

      If they have nothing better to do than criticize poetic style on other people’s blogs, they can’t have much of a life.

      Haiku is art in 17 syllables, not a computer program, and art evolves faster than most humans. Just sayin’….

      Your Haiku, your way. Post a link to a favorite you’ve written. I’d love to see it.

  4. Awesome! I love this. Always knew you had it in you. The beautiful bird and the art of haiku have both been honored here. Looking forward to seeing there this leads… ❤
