    Anyone else interested in these poems?

    I’d love to read some of yours. Dip that quill in ink!????

    What’s a Haiku poem?

    A haiku poem is a poem with a very specific structure. It doesn’t rhyme. It has 3 lines. The first line has 5 syllables, the second 7, and the third 5.

     

    As such:

     

    Sometimes I don’t know

    What I ought to write about.

    I write anyway.

     

    Drop-a-line, I love Haiku poems. Do you  have any? Are those ink stains I see on your quill? I’d love to see samples of yours.

    And one for today’s memorial…

    Eleven of nine
    The day lives in infamy
    Brave, hurt, tragedy

    That’s poignant, Chagit!

    My son’s Bar Mitzva is this week, so…

     

    How’s it 13 years?

    Yesterday my son was born.

    Now he is a man.

    Loving this thread! Especially love how Brocha’s encouraging Drop-a-line to spill! 🙂 I’ll second that!

    Hark, an impromptu

    Haiku, written just for you

    Deadlines loom, good-bye.

      <p>I love this! I can hear the cheerios! I like “Hitting floor rhythmically” better actually, but that’s just a personal opinion :)<br></p>

    <p>I promise I’m not trying to up my thread count for points but I don’t see an edit option.</p><p>I think I like Rhythmically hitting the floor. Not sure which is better.</p><p>And sorry about format. It was taking forever for the post to go through so I refreshed the page and then I saw all the brackets, etc.<br></p>

    Did anyone see my Haiku poem? I hope it didn’t get lost in the shuffle… Cry I think it was something to this effect: I’m feeling deeply,Very deeply and my emotions are swirling,But I will sit with it and hold it with compassion and kindness.

      <p>Passion, officially Haikus have 5 syllables in the first line, 7 in the second, and 5 again in the last. But, of course, there’s always poetic licenseWink!</p><p>I like yours! Simple, yet deep.</p>

    Thank you, Anagrammer. And thank you for that “permission!” That’s a hefty order to have 7 words, then 5 and then 7… lol. I actually have no idea… I just logged in, scrolled and posted… Woman Shrugging

    Also, I keep needing to refresh the page for my post to post and go through. Anyone also experiencing that?

    So by me, it shows that it’s kind of preparing to post, but it doesn’t, so I refresh it and then it posts.

      <p>Love it, Fayge! I like your style – the first two lines describe the scene and the last names it.</p>

      <p>I didn’t realize I have a style but takeh, you’re right! Thanks.</p><p>And the great thing is, I don’t have a great memory so it’s entirely possible I won’t remember this exchange next time I haiku. <br></p>

      Love that line, Brocha! It reminds me of a clip I saw by Rabbi YY Jacobson. Similar to what you’re saying, he says that thoughts/emotions/situations don’t define us. Rather, they’re a part of us and just that. He suggested noting it, observing it and continuing on. I just had to add it in because I absolutely love it.
