Six Tiny Poems

Six Tiny Poems

A Poem by Rana
"

Typical haiku, 5-7-5 syllable pattern, minimum punctuation.

"
trees silent, leaf bathes
in noise of incessant rain
roots drive thirst away


cottonweed seeds fly
diagonally away
white dots fade in blue


ripe maroon apple
among the green, snap it falls
hits skull, Newton frowns


a snowflake alights
on outstretched palm sparks delight
until humbly melts


precious sand hides bones
of dinosaurs deep beneath
unsuspected graves


cracks appear then grow
on the speckless white shell till
baby bird comes out

love them all...especially the second.."diagnonally away" is so cool..

in first one...first line i kept wanting to read as "leave bathe"
but these are really excellent..
you are a very good writer...you use words so well, and the elements of poetry, but the form doesn't override the feeling that comes from each work.

Hey, thanks Nat :) and I would so love to read yours!
A wonderful stream of haikus, such a clever you! . For me, the writing of a haiku contains an entire book when created with care and imagination. You've done just that, over and over.

The penultimate one touches home for me.

You're sweet :) I had been apprehensive.. And well, far too much and all very beautifully.
These are very nice poems. The third one made me laugh, but I like the last one best. But they're all good.
