Happy Belated Haiku Day!

Heyo everyone!

I know that this post is a little bit late, but I decided to write it anyways… πŸ˜‚

Saturday was International Haiku Day! Isn’t that cool? My friends and I had a haiku party and made sushi! πŸ₯ (why is that the sushi emoji? It doesn’t even look like sushi)

I decided to celebrate Haiku Day on my blog by posting a haiku I wrote.

Spring

Flower blossoms bloom

Rain falls to the ground softly

Birds chirp and frogs croak

This was a pretty short post, so I’m gonna make it more interesting by making a challenge for you! Write a haiku and post it in the comments!

In case you don’t know what a haiku is, it’s a type of poetry that originated in Japan. Haikus are traditionally about nature, but your haiku can be about anything!

Haikus have a pattern of 5 syllables on the first line, 7 syllables on the second line and 5 syllables on the third! That’s all! Pretty easy, right?

I look forward to reading your awesome haikus!

The Alps – A Poem

Heyo everyone! I know it’s been a while since I posted a poem, and to be honest, I haven’t been writing a lot of poetry lately, but I decided to post this one today because I really like it, even though it’s a bit short.

I’ve wanted to go to the Alps for a really long time, so I wrote this because I felt like that!

Snowy peaks
line the sky, 
I feel as if
I could fly

The sun shines bright
on frozen lakes, 
My breath
the alluring view
takes

Quaint 
mountain villages
hide in the snow, 
Oh the Alps are
where I long
to go

I hope you enjoyed today’s post, and I’m going to try to write more poetry to post on here soon! Don’t forget to come back on Friday for another post!

Where’s a place you really want to go to? Do you like writing short poems or long ones more? Have you ever been to the Alps?

Some *Maybe* Prose That I’ve Written

Heya people!

Like I promised on Tuesday, today I will be sharing something that I’ve written. I don’t really know what to call it. It might be prose, or maybe it’s a free verse poem…?

Anyways, here it is. (I wrote it late at night. Why does my creative side always come to me right when I’m trying to sleep?)

The sun is setting.

Colours change the sky.

Night falls, black and complete.

But through all the dark, the stars shine bright.

The night grows darker, and hope fades away.

But slowly and unexpectedly, dawn arrives, bringing with it new colours.

The sun peaks over the horizon, and joy arrives in little beams of light.

The night is over and the sun is shining again.

It’s meant to symbolize how even at dark times, the stars will shine bright, and not all is lost. The ‘Colours change the sky.’ part is meant to show that change is coming, be it good, or bad. Same as at the end. ‘…bringing with it new colours.’.

I think my favourite verse (or part… I don’t know, does ‘verse’ make it a poem?) is ‘The sun peaks over the horizon, and joy arrives in little beams of light.’. For some reason this just sounds so happy and playful to me.

That’s all for today! Bye!

Do you write poetry? Do you write prose? Do you have any idea which this is? (XD) What’s your favourite verse (part)?
