Sun released ice spring sips
A snowy owls feather swims silently away
Robins return looking for worms

Spring calling my name
Awaking me from long sleep
Make my winter dream

The Haiku rule of 5-7-5 syllables is not easy in English.
I don't know how easy it is in Japaneses.

It's challenging to write 'proper' Haiku in English that's for sure but that could be part of it's charm. You can get a little emotional, intellectual or spiritual work-out writing Haiku and there is always beauty in it's brevity like your beautiful Haiku above. Not sure what it's like writing Haiku in Japanese as i don't know the language unfortunately. Thank you for sharing

I quote myself "revised" because this is figured is the spirit of Haiku.


Sun melting ice spring sips
A White snowy owl feather floats away
Crows returning cawing for home

Haiku is like describing your day in 3 words and capturing the spirit all the same.

Ok, here is another.

Spring welcomes me in
I fell into its embrace
Ready to blossom

Nice, now try to fit all that into 5, 7, 5 syllable rule.

Never tried a haiku before - did I get it right, 5 - 7 - 5? It's not words right, its 'vowel sounds'?
