A Violin's Tears

A Violin's Tears

A Poem by Jen Marks

A haiku I had to write for my Writer's Craft class. I think it turned out pretty well! :)



Soft, sweet, distant cries


Hopeless, but so intriguing


Lost without your voice

I played the violin a very long time and still play one of her "sister" instruments. You exactly caught the feeling when you play a sad melody, because you can't get it out of your mind even when you're happy. Small but powerful, to get to the point. LG The Secret Writer

I am not a big fan of form---- I have nothing against it I have used it myself on occasion but I usually don't use a spicific one or if I do I am unaware of it. This was nice, made a clear picture in my mind

I love short and simple poems. Sometimes when you are not even expecting it, you write the most wonderful things. This the case here! I really could sense the softness about it and the instrument, since indeed a violin as soft cries or very intense pitched ones. Great Job!

You said so many beautiful things in such a short poem.
It's absolutely great! You did a magnificent job with this.

Gorgeous! Indeed, this type of instrument, along with piano, can give those mysterious and haunting tones, yet it is even more beautiful when the artist expresses their emotions when they play. Great work!

Nice haiku. Haiku was the first form I learned. My great teacher Winifred Ruthroff taught us freedom would come with the ability to control.

After all we are painting portraits. If a few brush strokes say it all, why not?

Haiku's and Cinquain's will make you a better writer of lyrics.
