North wind spins frigid

Air: water puddle freezes.

Where you step, beware!

I have attempted yet another haiku challenge from Ronovan Writes blog using the words “spin” and “water”. I am enjoying the challenge of putting different and even opposite words in such a short poem.  If you like word challenges and haiku’s, then I invite you to also accept Ronovan’s latest challenge at this link: https://ronovanwrites.wordpress.com/category/haiku-prompt-challenge/

Another Haiku Just for Fun

Inspired by other poets in my poetry class who are writing multiple haiku’s about water which included a simile, I decided to attempt another one. I was amazed at all the different ways, people thought about water.

Drip

I hear a drip drip

from a  tap sounding like tick

tick of my father’s clock

Poetry 201 Assignment One: Water

 

441

I have enrolled in a poetry writing class and my first assignment was to write a haiku about water. So here is my try at a haiku. I haven’t written those in a long time so this is good practice. This type of poem has 3 lines; the first line contains 5 syllables, then next line 7 syllables and the last contains 5 syllables.  Do you think I completed the assignment correctly?  Anyway here is my haiku:

Tinkling of a stream

Deep inside the forest green;

A hushed melody
