HAIKU STRINGS Poetic Melodies takes the familiar Haiku to a new level. Each seventeen syllable haiku is able to standalone, but when joined with other haikus; they tell a story, a truth, a rant or tribute.

The most common form for Haiku is three short lines. The first line contains five (5) syllables, second line seven (7) syllables and the third line has five (5) syllables. Haikus do not rhyme. A Haiku must paint a mental image in the reader’s mind. This is the challenge of Haiku – to put the poem’s meaning and imagery in the reader’s mind in ONLY 17 SYLLABLES over just three (3) lines of poetry!

Excerpt

Haiku Flaming Hearts

Whispers in the dark
Hearts burning in love’s sweet fire
Flaming ecstasy

Fireworks fill the mind
Hearts flashing in each moment
We burn with desire

Moonbeams fill each heart
Now burning out of control
Bubbling with love

Sweet embers aglow
Melting hearts of steaming love
Merging together

Love’s sweet afterglow
Extinguished the burning flames
Ignites flaming hearts

HAIKU STRINGS Poetic Melodies
Haiku Nature

Oh, this is perfection! I absolutely loved these haiku.

If I had to pick a favorite, it would be hard, but I just loved
the reaction my mind had when I read the "Conquest in Autumn"
I actually heard the 'CRUNCHING' sound of the falling leaves!

Magnificant poetess extraordinaire!!

Reviewer Helena



Haiku Nature


What I saw in this piece was more than just words or a format. I saw a vision. I was shocked to open this piece and see what I saw. The way you presented imagery amongst imagery. Both the pictures, and the words flowed well together. You went that extra distance to present your work in the true way you envisioned it within yourself. It says a lot about you as a person.

This made me look at haiku's in a different way. I've seen the technique many times where more than one haiku is used to create a longer poem. In this, you presented it where I, as the reader, could continue seeing color even after the color scrolled beyond the page.

Very nicely executed and presented. You have a wonderful sense of soul.

Haiku Seasons

The seasons mesh and mingle very beautifully together. I especially like this haiku:

Icicles glistening

Wrapped around in sparkling style

Glimmering daggers

Nice work!



Reviewer: Frances O'Neill



Haiku Seasons

Beautifully written as always. Loved the description of spring. You brought my favorite season to life.

Reviewer Lizanne Green
