nature haiku

I wrote this haiku in a poetry workshop I took last year:


creek cascades down,
pooling and overflowing—
endless beginnings

Sierra in View
So many places to see
Hard to pick just one

Had a friend I worked with for 10 years. We communicated sometimes in Haiku. Nice one though.

if you want more syllables to work with, look up Tanka.. otherwise, the cadence is 5, 7, 5. Heck, all mgmt slides should be just that. :)

illyav's was better than mine. supposed to twist the last line with meaning.

Cascading slowly
icy tendrils envelope
Another night's sleep

Russ, if that was for me, my initial post wasn't supposed to be haiku :unibrow:
