Three Haikus: Poetry with Training Wheels

March 25, 2020

I am beginning to think that all I have to write about is the woes associated with the Coronavirus 
and how it has interrupted my routine.

It hit me last night as I was telling Jennifer, in my weekly TeachWrite writing group,
my writing plans for the next week.

Sharon, an amazing writer in the group, mentioned an IG poetry group, and I checked it out.
I didn't feel knowledgeable enough about poetry to try their activities.
But, I was moved to try some different styles of poetry on my own.

Wanna hear it? Here it go!

The Ocean
High tide and low tides
Currents fluxing to and fro
Large billowing waves

Budding new plant life
Sprouting through fresh, moist soil
Spring is beginning

A Tree
To see the forest
For the greenery abounds
From the timber-filled woodlands


  1. So much can be said with just a few words in petty, especially haiku

  2. Very Nice! I like A Tree the best. Probably because I wish I could wander through a forest right now.

  3. Strong images in all 3! Way to try something new!

  4. I love seeing how you push yourself in your writing! Will you be writing poetry in April for National Poetry Month?
