From the mountain tops,
gathering the rain got lost –
quenching my dry throat

(haiku heights)

  1. Very nice photos. Is writing haiku harder than writing other verses?

  2. In some ways, yes, because of the strict rules. When you have only 5-7-5 syllables, you have to be economical with your words... I believe I've read that in real haiku poems, there shall be no pronouns. By that rule, only the last one of todays haiku are a real haiku. There shall also be a contrast between the first and the last line. If the first line is about happiness, the last should be about sorrow etc. That is the hardest rule, and I seldom manage to follow it. But the hardest part of writing these haiku, was the language... In norwegian I've got a bit more control of what's legal to write or not, and getting my spellings correct.

    But, by all this said, I love to write haiku poems - it's a challenge and it sharpens the brain!

  3. Beautiful haiku. You are so disciplined to the craft and I love the image as well. Great post!!

  4. "Raindrop adventurers" what a great phrase.

  5. Very creative photography ~ love the water and the texture ~ for OWT ~ thanks, carol, xxx

  6. Very nice - I especially like the idea of the adventurers returning home!
