Haiku Special

Summer Haiku 2

waves caress the shore

rainbow connects land and sea

fireworks flash

“As you all know the goal of the CD-Specials is to write a new haiku (or tanka) in the same tone, sense and spirit as the given one. So I hope that this haiku will inspire you.

A beauty I think … I hope that I have inspired you all to create a new haiku, tanka or Japanese poetry form.
wind chimes
resonate against the buildings
a thunderstorm passed”

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.
