Haiku 1

Golden color rains,
Crackles and breaks under shoes,
Spills dry, lifeless blood.

    I wonder who thought up this form of writing! I know it is from Japan, but ….
    Yours are always so “open to interpretation “ in their makeup. Lovely.

  2. The depth found in the poetic forms, that you claim are new to you, show a talent beyond your experience. I know it doesn’t come as easy as your free verse, but the finished product is well worth the effort, Kat.

    1. Thanks, J. No, it doesn’t come as easily, but I do enjoy working with the words to make them fit within a set confine.
      I miss your writing. Whether on your current blog, or the previous one, I always enjoyed reading your work. 💙

  3. I remember when I first tried Haiku. I really liked it and preferred it to other forms. Until my Instructor began to explain all the rules and “proper” procedures that are related to it. For the most part, I continued to do it “my” way, lol. I like your words, they draw a very clear image with developed sense imagery as well.
