O' hail the sunlight
Glimmering off tears falling
like dew rolling down
the first couple times thru this i had this picture in my mind of a dew drop dancing on the tip of a dark green summer leaf.
then upon rereading i realized it says "tears falling/like dew..."
so is it actual tears or actual dew,hmmm.
the important thing is is that it puts a crystal clear image in the readers mind whichever way you look at it.
is that the important thing?
now i'm confused.
i like this a lot.
not the confusion, the haiku and the fact that it's making me think...

It's a form that proves too much of a challenge for my brain, but that fact allows me to appreciate those who are able to do justice to few words that speak beyond their brevity. You have accomplished just that! Smiles, Sharon||| Posted on 2007-01-30 00:00:00 | by Peggy Paris | [ Reply to This ] || Shann-n, this is a beautiful Haiku! It paints a much broader word picture than the shortness of the verse! How about "Tears of the Sun" for a title?||| Posted on 2007-01-26 00:00:00 | by Ron Cole | [ Reply to This ] |
