About the Poems

Thanks to Brenda's Week 30 prompt on 'clouds' and manatita's kind nudge, I sat down to write these Haiku. Well, technically these are not Haiku because I didn't follow the 5-7-5 pattern. Instead, I made up a pattern of 3-7-3, which seemed to better suit the topic.

And now, the lines. As always, Haiku is about imagination, so explanations aren't necessary. Always open to interpretation.

The Poem

Unread mail

Flies from the distant heavens

Riding clouds


Darkest kiss

Tremors of blue scare the sky

Dancing clouds


Boubou beaks

A bite of cotton candy

Autumn clouds


Dewdrop's foes

Longing for tears in the skies

Lonely clouds
