Jay's Saturday Morning Haiku - 5

Jay's Saturday morning haiku - 5


The English form of the traditional Japanese Haiku includes any or all of the following:

 

  • The use of 17 syllables, in the form of three lines, with 5, 7 and 5 syllables respectively.  Some haiku may employ 10 - 14 syllables, but 17 is traditional.
  • The use of a season in the poem.
  • The use of a "cut word" or punctuation to set off and compare two images.

 


Impatiens curling.

 

They sure have grown impatient –

 

It is getting cold.

Haiku with a photo! Impatienc are my absolute favorite - the riot of color, the beautiful blooms, the sturdy stalks. I believe Martha Washington is crediting with spreading the popularity of this delicate, yet sturdy plant. Kind of like our emerging nation after the American Revolution.

I didn't know that Anne, but I have seen the gardens at Mount Vernon and they do contain Impatiens!

James - thanks.  These are fun to come up with.

You like my haikus?
I will have more for you soon -
Promise to enjoy.

There's one just for you James!

Good morning Jay. Mother nature was impatient earlier this week when she dumped a little snow on my impatiens. Just a warning of what's to come. Love the Haiku's

Tis' the season, I'm curling too and throwing rocks at houses! I posted about this last year. No impatiens involved.

Jay - your heiku are doing well, just like the impatiens in your picture.  Have a fantastic weekend!

You're welcome Carol.  I enjoy writing them!

Michael - not for these guys.  I took that picture a couple of weeks ago.  Much warmer then!

Randy - they are in for it.  They really look bad now.

Robert - it might just get a bit cooler yet!  I have seen curling on TV and frankly don't understand it.

Thanks Steven.  These are fun to do.  There will be more!
