December In The Tropics [A Haiku]

Relaxing Day In The Islands

Tickling teasing feel

Relaxing resting breeze.

December is here.


My Kindle [A Haiku]



Twisting twerking screen

screaming all tech things modern,

small smartly mobile.


Dear Readers,

The above is  a Haiku based on my kindle for Writing 201:Poetry. For the next  two weeks I will be posting more often to complete all assignments for this WordPress  Poetry course. I hope you enjoy the journey with me. What important screens are in your life? Let me know in the comment section below.




Haiku On Hurricanes


Tight, captured – the eye

of silent wrapped fierce winds

moving over lands, hunt.


Crawling, coming, came

striking a deadly blow, yes.

Washing objects away.


Grief stricken people

lamenting of winds and rain,

yet treading afresh.


I choose the poetry form of  Haiku for this poem about hurricane because of its structure. Haiku creates that tight, powerful imagery through words that I believe works well with events such as hurricanes. When a hurricane moves it is either slow and deadly or fast and deadly and I look at a Haiku almost the same. The movement in a Haiku always hit with a purposeful force (well at least it should, hope I hit someone with a purpose force :P). Haiku and hurricanes moves with little words but effective ways to leave you breathless. I am new to this poetry form, very hesitant at first but moved by capabilities.

wet season I ask

fill my cascading fall quick

like stolen kisses

It is my first attempt at Haiku, a Japanese’s poetry form. It should depict the use of water and a simile.  I struggled to meet the 5, 7, 5 syllables [well at least I feel I came close]. I did not want to skip the first assignment because the aim of the Poetry Course is to help write different poetry forms. Thank you Ben.
