The Haiku Challenge, day 23

Written for The Haiku Challenge 2012 - Day 23 – February 23rd – Theme: Joy of Giving Form: (ABC, CDE, EFA) - Haiku

Another haiku form I am not so familiar with. I have read some of these on Ramesh's weblog. I love this form, so this is a real challenge for me. But I have to try before I die :-) (just a proverb people use here in The Netherlands).

Joy of Giving
wonderful verses of the Far East
a haiku addict

a haiku addict
writing every day again
verses of nature

verses of nature
every season it's own words
all through the year

all through the year
I enjoy giving my haiku
to the world

to the world
I only can say 'haiku is great'
join the fun

join the fun
throwing snowballs in the street
a child's play

Nice ...Haiku is challenging.

Ramesh Sood said...

Good one.. you know when I tried this style first time... someone called them dancing verses..I don't know but Haiku indeed becomes an addiction..but to reach out to the hearts of people is difficult.. you appear to be achieving it without much effort..

Very nice set ... if I understand this particular form (certainly not my forte) the last line should be the repeat of the first line (the beginning line). I need more practice ... Ramesh is the master among us! :)

Karen said...

Excellent series of haiku! I am addicted too!

Neha said...

Good one, Thanks for the idea, even I'll write a haiku using this format :)
