Subject: Traditional Haiku

Written By: RockandRollFan on 02/12/05 at 9:45 am

Now made to please all...a traditional Haiku thread. Here is the definition of Traditional Haiku:

(plural: Haiku, from archaic Japanese Haikai): A poetic form derived from Japanese literature. The haiku traditionally consists of three lines. The first line contains five syllables, the second line contains seven, and the last line five. The traditional subject-matter is a description of a location, natural phenomona, or wildlife.

So with THAT in mind....

The ocean waves crash,
As a storm brews in the sky,
Mad mother nature

Storm clouds arise slow
Yet no one appears to see
Dancing rain falls down
