Young and Tender | Short Poem No. 51

Young and tender plants

are like young children waking

in tender mornings.

Friends, I am still here writing Haikus – for the whole week now. They are something I am fairly new to. But I think, now, I am starting to feel my groove with them and make them my own.

If you like Haikus, please check out “Rebuilt” by Rusted Honey who, in my opinion, is really great at them. Also check out my Haiku from yesterday if you haven’t yet, “Mountains’ Feet.”

Mountains’ Feet | Short Poem No. 50

At the mountains’ feet,
man came to build them a shoe;
that is, a horseshoe.

Friends, this is probably my third or fourth attempt at Haiku. As you can probably tell, I am still learning – trying to mix in traditional techniques/rules, but with my own touch. I want to keep challenging myself, while not confining my own creativity.

If you liked this post, also check out a great set of Haikus with a beautiful dedication, “Haiku: For Rachel” by Whippet Wisdom, as well as my previous Haiku about love, “Delicate Flowers.”

Delicate flowers

are epitomes of you

dressed pretty in pink.

This Haiku is submitted for the BrewNSpew Coffee Break. Also check out my other recent Haiku, “Thin White Lines.”
