Experimenting with Haikus

February 16, 2015

So this is a brief attempt at a haiku based on the prompt of water and using a simile….

Praise, like water is
For the soul to grow, more than
Sorrow, to Son-light

Second draft
Praise like water, now
My heart a drumbeat thankful
Sinews, meshed in breath
Dust giving birth to new sound
Sorrow to sunlight

Combined…

Praise, like water is
For the soul to grow–more than
Sorrow to Son–light
Praise like water, now
My heart a drumbeat thankful
Sinews, meshed in breath
Dust giving birth to new sound
Sorrow to sunlight
