Sometimes everything has to be enscribed across the heavens so you can find the one line already written inside you. Sometimes it takes a great sky to find that small, bright, and indescribable wedge of freedom in your own heart. David Whyte

Writing 101 – Haiku – Flight

on September 30, 2015

Wild geese need no map
Nature’s compass deep within
Deftly guides their flight.

    Lovely haiku–and I do envy them their natural compass; I have Zero sense of direction…. 🙂

  2. Ah, you remind me of the geese I saw flying over me yesterday on their way to warmer climes 🙂

      It is a delight to tell you how to write haiku. The first line is five syllables (not words) long. The second line is seven syllables long. The third is five syllables long. A classic haiku has a twist at the end but mine do not always manage that. You can have only one stanza and a couple more are OK. Enjoy. Viva. ❤
