I stepped out in rush when the clouds spreading their wings like angels showering drops of nectar caught me by surprise and the cool raindrops brought up a forgotten song in my mind. Words formed verses and my breath gave it a rhythm. I suddenly broke out into a poem and found my happy place.
Releases and sets free…
Clouds and brimming tears…”
The warmth of summer-love or pain of missing someone arises with the rain and often gives birth to a poem in every heart.
I love jotting down a haiku which is a very short poem, originated in Japan. A traditional haiku mentions the season or is inspired by it. It follows no specific structure but just few simple rules.
- It must be of only three lines.
- The first line is only 5 syllables.
- The second line is 7 syllables.
- The third line is only 5 syllables as in the first line.
Runa, one of our reader, shares beautifully a haiku which touched our core leaving us wanting some more, she writes,
“Grim clouds with purpose
Multiply nature’s bounty
A cyan Monday.”
