haiku are supposed to be about nature, and what's more natural than DNA. These are loosely connected, but not as cohesive as I would've liked.

DNA (haiku)

molecules kissing
twist in a festival that
spirals toward life

miniature ladders
twirl into intricate twine
woven by Divine

patchworks grafted in
blending myriads of patterns
to blanket the earth

  Ah, this is something I would think of writing in science while contemplating the poetic merits to biology and such :) You did a nice job of making something very "sciencey" sound beautifully poetic.

  This was a very good piece, everything fitted in perfectly. The only thing that I didn't like about it was how you had D: first stanza N: second stanza and then A: third stanza ... if you catch my drift. It just sort of took out the bit of mystery I thought this piece contained. Other than that, great work!

  Very clever, absolutely true, and lovely work with the form! I could not resist taking a peek and was definitely not disappointed. :-) Sharon

  Very Origanel and I must say exceptionally well written
I too have experimented with continuous Haiku poems and I know they are not easy to write but once they come together they are really art
Great Job!!!
God Bless

Please if you get a chance Please take a look at some of my writes and let me know what you think
Thank You
