NaPoWriMo Poem Day 27 ~~~ Haiku




Sun peeking over

Horizon sees beauty in

What darkness has hid


Silhouette of tree

Reaching to the skies, begging

For Heaven’s moisture


Clouds in purple sky

Natural beauty at dawn

Sun plays peek-a-boo




The NaPoWriMo’s website prompt today was to write a poem based from a picture prompt. They gave four pictures, but I decided to use one I found myself. I also decided to do a few Haiku, as I haven’t done any this month yet. Japanese haiku traditionally consist of 17 on, or sounds, divided into three phrases: 5 sounds, 7 sounds, and 5 sounds. English poets interpreted on as syllables. That’s the easy definition. It can get rather complex, but I will leave that to the experts.

Daily Prompt: Roy G. Biv

Todays Daily Prompt is:

Write about anything you’d like, but make sure that all seven colors of the rainbow — red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet — make an appearance in the post, either through word or image.

Photographers, artists, poets: show us COLORS.

Today I thought I would try something I don’t usually do, Haiku’s. I’m not a poet, but I need to get out of the box a bit. So here goes.


Colors are best seen

Up in the sky shining bright

And deep in my heart

One More Guest Post ~~ Haiku by Tiny!

My good friend tiny over at tinylessonsblog wrote me a Haiku for my finish line at NaNo. She has already gotten her 50,000 word book done! Well for NaNo, Anyways, and it was her first year participating! Congrats to tiny! Next it’s time for editing and then more editing. 😉

Tiny is also a great Haiku writer. I love her little poems and her longer ones. She does what I can’t seem to do and I admire her greatly for it.  Here is what she writes about herself.

About me (in no particular order): happy beach bum, former director, active world traveler, so-so wife/mother/grandmother, good friend, busy-enough management consultant, funny ENFP, reflective mentor, passionate dog owner, occasional poet, true music fan, pretty good cook, really poor blues (guitar) player, meditative thinker, and a decent leadership coach. And I forgot, I’m not a photographer, just a pretty creative illustrator. Based on this narrow but true profile, my blog will probably be… well, multi-faceted.

She is also pretty good taking photos of the wildlife around where she lives. The picture to go with her Haiku is one she took herself. Let’s give her a big welcome!
