Pink Cherry Blossoms (Hanami)

Pink Cherry Blossoms (Hanami)

A Poem by Alani
"

I woke up thinking about the amazing Pink Cherry Blossoms that must be blooming in Asia at the moment... then I remembered that Haiku is actually a form of Japanese poetry and the two came together!

"



the pretty spring sun
cherry blossoms one by one
Hanami lets go

OR


the pretty spring sun
cherry blossoms one by one
all bright in pink bloom 

AND


winter trees in bloom
enduring spring sun shines through
pink cherry blossoms


And just for a laugh... I struggled a bit: 

pink cherry blossoms 

bright yellow spring sunrays shine
this haiku doesn't rhyme
hahaha

Author's Note

Alani
Haiku - Japanese poetry - 5-7-5, about nature and happening now.
Though Westerners, we have tried to match up to the brilliance of Japanese poetry, we could never get close to their sophistication... but I try, as I love it so much! x

Your 3-pack of haikus worked well......I would suggest to link them up in some way, i.e. Each one seems as if it can stand independently..... To see a progression from one to the next, with a climax in the third could be a sweet smelling idea.....:)

Ever tried a Senryu? Same structure, but instead of nature, the topic is human emotions.
