I have compiled this collection of 14 poems I wrote from the posts previously published on Poetry Perfected (my free site that I no longer want to maintain). I have been moving many of my poems from that site to this one this past month.
Haiku poetry is easy to write, consists of three lines, and usually follows the 5-7-5 syllable pattern. The third line generally offers some type of “surprise” or something that is unexpected.
Some people write in a 5-5-7 or a 7-5-5 pattern, which is also acceptable, although I prefer the traditional 5-7-5 pattern.
Much has been written on Haiku Poetry, so there’s no need to rehash it all here. However, for more information on writing Haiku poetry, you can read “How To Write A Haiku Poem“.
Here are a variety of Haiku poems that I have written. Since they are so short, I have decided to include two dozen (24) here. Some are light, some are dark, and some are in-between. I have also included pictures to accompany many of these 24 Haiku poems, and, to identify each them, I have simply numbered them.
If you like a particular one, simply tell me which one (or ones) that you like in the comment section, please!

Last Updated : Saturday, June 25, 2016 Waiting. This is something we all have done. Many of us hate it. Some things seem to take forever to happen, kind of like watching a pot of water, waiting for it to boil. Waiting. Time passes slowly. Hearts race. Stress elevates. Anxiety becomes your best friend.
