valentines-day-haiku

Happy (or not) Valentine's Day!

The color is red
which accentuates the heart
beating as if one

The question is asked
Will you be my Valentine
Now and forever

Kisses are so sweet
Lift her right off of her feet
they are a real treat

Chocolate is yum
Can you please deliver some
or else be a bum

Conversation hearts
Read aloud to each other
Then savor each bite

valentines-day-haiku

More Haikus for your Valentine

Love like a fine wine
the knot is made of coarse twine
drink well and be fine

Will you marry me
We wonder what she will say
Maybe go away

Can you give a hug
to a male who likes to bug
while wearing a rug

I dreamt I loved you
Realized it was a bad dream
you are a nightmare

Cupid you are not
Life is blissful and so nice
Since you took a hike

Love forever lost
My heart forever so sad
for the love we had

The Valentine's Day Song

Hi.... on February 13, 2019:

here's a funny haiku,

Forget red and blue,

Pizza's the color of love,

And chocolate too.

peachy from Home Sweet Home on February 15, 2015:

Beautiful poem, wish that my valentines day was that fruitful

Barbara Purvis Hunter from Florida on February 14, 2015:

Hi,

And, here I am again enjoying your Valentine Poems---I loved the Valentine Song it is still in my head and probably will be until I go to sleep.

I hope your Valentine Day was wonderful with kisses, candy, hugs, babies all around, your Sweetheart and flowers.

I am sharing this with Twitter and pin on my repin board.

I took very good care of myself this week. Smiles. Yesterday was feeling so alone but today so many lovely Valentine colors, chocolates, poems. Thanks for the beautiful red heart picture on your hub!

Suzie from Carson City on February 14, 2015:

Love is in the air.......but I have a head cold and my breathing if off!! :)

Patricia Scott from North Central Florida on February 14, 2015:

O yes...'or not'....I liked the line 'when you took a hike'....sometimes when all is said and done that makes Valentine's Day better than we can imagine.

Hoping you have had a lovely day. I am being Nini today and enjoying very much. I feel very loved.

Angels are on the way to you today ps

Audrey Hunt from Idyllwild Ca. on February 14, 2015:

Love,

Audrey

Kristen Howe from Northeast Ohio on February 14, 2015:

Excellent haiku, Sunshine. It's the hardest form of poetry to do. I've tried them a decade ago and did get one or two published in print. Thanks for sharing your poetry with us.

Great job here! Excellent Haiku for Valentines Day! I enjoyed it very much!

Linda Bilyeu (author) from Orlando, FL on February 14, 2012:

Hi Nell, that haiku was a fun one to create. It was actually for a friend of mine who recently broke up with her boyfriend. She printed it out and has it on her fridge to make her smile:)

Hi CMcastro, Who knows maybe your secret admirer will look you up one day! Happy Valentine's Day.

Christina M. Castro from Baltimore,MD USA on February 14, 2012:

Very adorable haiku poem and video too. Reminds me of my younger years. I still don't know who my secret admirer was in 1979!

Nell Rose from England on February 14, 2012:

Hi, this is my favorite!

I dreamt I loved you,

Realized it was a bad dream

you are a nightmare!

Haha!, absolutely brilliant! Happy Valentines day!

Linda Bilyeu (author) from Orlando, FL on February 14, 2012:

Hello mpoche, I'm glad you were able to select a favorite.

Hi Poetic Fool, I'm happy you found it and what perfect timing on Valentine's Day!:)

Thank you for your comments and Happy Valentine's Day!

Poetic Fool on February 14, 2012:

Linda, I don't know how I missed this one but I did. Definitely a different take on Valentine's Day but a most entertaining one. I haven't decided if I really enjoy haiku because I always finding myself counting syllables and not focusing on the meaning. Must be the analytical (or anal) side of me. Still, I got a few chuckles from your wonder haiku so it was worth it. Thanks for sharing!

Michal from Miami, Florida on February 14, 2012:

Cupid you are not!

Life is blissful and so nice,

Since you took a hike!

This is my favorite- I think we have all been there once or twice!!

Linda Bilyeu (author) from Orlando, FL on February 14, 2012:

That's a fab phrase for Halloween! I use it also!:)

Brenda Trott, M.Ed from Houston, TX on February 14, 2012:

How cute. How humorous. Thank you for your words!

Tammy from North Carolina on February 13, 2012:

I have to really think about this one. I turned on the computer this morning and a certain someone didn't sign out of his Craiglist chat room. He was asking his friends in the fitness room how he could trick his fat girlfriend into losing weight because she was too lazy to realize she needs to do it for herself. Someone is going to be in the dog house this Valentine's Day. Cute hub!

Vinaya Ghimire from Nepal on February 13, 2012:

These all are gems. But I choose this one.

Kisses are sweet

Lift her right off of her feet

they are a real treat!

Beautiful haiku.

Jonathan McCloskey from Cinnaminson, New Jersey on February 13, 2012:

Cindy Murdoch from Texas on January 15, 2012:

Too often with Valentine's on the 14th, and my B-day on the 16th, they are celebrated together. But I know that he loves me anyway. And i love the chocolate!

FloraBreenRobison on January 15, 2012:

One year I actually attended a wedding on Valentine's day. But usually for me it is just another day of the year. I've always been a big fan of chocolate too.

drbj and sherry from south Florida on January 15, 2012:

Hi, Sunshine. Loved your Haiku and the video. And I'm with you all the way on the chocolate.

UltimateMovieRankings from Virginia on January 15, 2012:

Very nicely done...hard to believe we are only days away from another Valentine's Day. My wife is not much of a chocolate eater...but she loves her some carnations...trying to figure out how many to get her this year. Voted up.

Linda Bilyeu (author) from Orlando, FL on January 13, 2012:

Thank you Haiku Sue!:)

Hi Myth, I thought of a few friends and the poems were written in their honor. I like V-Day but I'm more for showing the love everyday:)

Sending you both some hublove!

mythicalstorm273 on January 13, 2012:

I loved the video! That is so cute :-) The poem is also wonderful! I do not celebrate V-day, but I enjoy all the love and stuff anyways. Your poem was far from the usual V-day item, but I think I enjoyed it more for that specific reason! Great job :-)

Susan Zutautas from Ontario, Canada on January 13, 2012:

Wow wow wow!!!! This is fantastic!!!
