The Seasons In Haiku

     Last week I posted my first attempt at “Haiku”  (to rave reviews I might add) and I was encouraged to continue with what is “a natural talent” for the art..So naturally, once again, I’m not taking any responsibility, what-so-ever, if you should not like the following, (but of course you’re going to like them, as you are all fine and discerning patrons of the arts) please let me know and I will fabricate pass-on the names of the blogs from which the aforementioned encouragement and “critical acclaim” originated, and you may express your opinion(s), as to their questionable judgement regarding “Haiku” directly, to these obviously kind, sensitive and sincere and of course knowledgable, judges of my inane inate talent for the ancient and honorable tradition that is, “Haiku!”

     After reading the above introduction I have come up with a mathematical equation  for the veracity of said introduction..x+y-a=bs.  (bs=90%)

     Tuesday awaits you

  face it with dignity when

     the sun rises new,

Jake.

The Seasons In Haiku

[ • ]

 Summer sizzles hot

While winter chills to the soul

Spring and fall do not.

……………………………………………………..

Leaves abound from trees

Rest on the dry browning grass

Wait now winter’s breeze.

………………………………………………………..

Whirling swirling fans

Attempt a cooling motion

Beer is sold in cans.

………………………………………………………….

Mountains white with snow

Beckon skiers to the slope

I seek the fire glow.

……………………………………………………………

    How weird is it that tonight on my flight home I was thinking about writing haikus……and then here you post a bunch. Are we twins separated at birth????

  2. Those are very amusing haiku – and adding the rhyme is a nice touch to emphasis your sense of humour.
