Haïkus

Who wants to play making haïkus with me ? Those short poems of three verses, the middle one is generaly longer than the two others, (I've sometimes read that the first must be of 5 feet, the second of 7, and the third of 5, but let's not be too rigid...) And please be indulgent, I've hardly made half a dozen in French, and this is my first in English, suggestions for improvement would be a plus !


bright and cold blue sky
greens and yellows of a child's drawing
spring is all around


Whose turn ?

    watches us through the window
    of the second floor

  • What a damned writing system! Just deceiving! Sorry Pampanella
