Haiku and Hokku




Winter breathes coldly

A rose on new-fallen snow

Beauty in nature


White carpet without

Inside, the dog sleeps soundly

Dreaming of Spring days


Rain upon the window

Soothing, sweetly singing soft

As I write about it




Family stay near

Life's storms draw close together

What calm drives apart


Special together

As I concentrate on work

She watches TV


Fearing the future

She wraps her arms around me

And holds me tightly




Alluring water-front

Holding magnificent crafts

Warships now at peace


Men of foul language

Cargo brought ashore today

The smell of the sea


Moonlight on the waves

Horns of vessels passing by

A lonely gull cries

Although I am too old

Although I am too old fashioned to like *most* of the haiku written outside of the 5/7/5 pattern, I make an exception for these.  They are absolutely and undoubtedly brilliant, and I hope you will be working on some more soon, as this form seems to fit your observations and experiences.  Bravo on a great job!
