A Haiku A Day

It's been a while I did a Haiku on here. So I believe it's long overdue. What's haiku? you my ask.

It's a form of poetry that uses the 5-7-5 format. That is; five syllables on the first line, seven on the second and five on the third. It's a strict form of writing poetry. Not as easy as it looks. I used three prompts here. The sky, the mantis and a beautiful scenery. These ones are lose, kind of a free write.

Take a look.


they shift endlessly
the colours, the trees, the clouds,
all in unison


morning, afternoon.
like a mantis in prayer,
devoid of a prey


one would stop and stare
at a sight so beautiful,
and wonder in awe
