Haiku

The clouds open up,
And let loose their mournful tears.
Earth drinks their sorrow

Wrote this for the General Simplicity Contest. The theme was Rain Haikus.

Well well well Mav.
You should try to write another poem. I miss them D:
Your haikus are breath taking as usual ">,>
You really do have a talent for taking three small lines and transforming them into something beautiful.

Your last one was pretty good. That last metaphor (Or w/e they're called) weighed out the poem, better or worse I'm not sure. If better, I wouldn't be surprised if you took home the gold.

I'm actually working on a free verse for the poetry contest. Should be done either tonight or tomorrow. :D

Thanks, though I've had a lot of practice.

Theres a lot of good haiku's in the contest, so I'd say its anyone's game right now. And thanks for the compliment. :)

Give me a ring on my profile to check it out, mkay? :D

Just from competing in the Haiku contest or elsewhere? Because even people that practice for years couldn't really define things the way you have an ability to do.

I will do that. :)

I read a ton, so I'm in near constant contact with quality literature (Dante, Robert Frost, Maya Angelou, Gary Soto, Poe, O. Henry, and Emily Dickinson are some of my favorite poetsand authors), so I read a lot of styles and poetry in general. And I jot down a lot of poems, though I don't ussualy post them up here because I don't think there very good.

I also write a lot for practice, about 30 minutes to an hour, just writing whatever comes to mind. I ussualy get some time in on AG just typing up stuff.

With the Haikus, they just come to me. I dunno really, I just think and it suddenly appears. And I google image other topics just to get an idea of what people think when they see 'Fire and Ice'. Ussualy, obvious stuff comes up, but sometimes something really interesting turns up.
