Haiku 02 - I Am Sad Today

The poet is a medical student with a weird sense of humour and spends a great deal of time exploring ways to flourish his cultural insight.


I am sad today

Bats fly when owls cry,
Stars shine and moon glows but
I am sad today.


Note from the poet :

Many of us, though have heard the name 'Haiku' many times,don't actually understand what it is. So, questions like 'Why there is no rhythm? ' or ' How can only 3 small lines make a poem? ' are normal.

HAIKUS are Japanese short poem which are traditionally composed within 17 syllables in 3 lines. These syllables are respectively divided in order of 5-7-5. Haikus are not meant to rhyme rather they are a set of simple words arranged in a particular formation so that they can act a punch line for certain situations.

See that's the beauty of haikus, a huge aggregation of emotions, feelings always lands a punch somewhere in your mind as you read a haiku. It almost resembles the feeling of being amazed when you get to see reflection of the entire meadow in the shiny surface of a tiny dew drop. Hence, reading such haikus always leaves me awestruck.

I gladly accept your suggestion and appreciate it too. You quite a good deal of time in reviewing me for my own benfit. It meant a lot to me. I obviously will keep your advice in mind.

I like your haikus and the humour that goes with them.

May I make a suggestion? If you want to get more out of your hubs and attract more readers, you might find it to your advantage to put some of your haikus together, in similar groups. For example your frog one and this one and maybe others like this that you might have in the pipeline. I don't always keep to what hubpages likes but hubs tend to be more recognised if they are 750 words plus.

I've found that with poetry this is sometimes difficult, so I put in a bit of information around the subject of the poetry or some connection.

Again, I hope you don't mind but it might help your traffic.

Best wishes, and I hope you're keeping safe and well.
