  A Haiku is a three-line Japanese verse form. The first and third lines of a haiku have five syllables. The second line has seven syllables. The brief form is designed to arouse a specific emotion or suggest an insight about life.

That said you did a decent job here. I must say though that you have the most interesting use of words I have ever seen, ever. You literally had seven words in your second line, each one syllable. Thats just so creative. Thumbs up for that.

Keep up the good work
This was very good for a second attempt at a rather difficult form.

Take care


Crystal clear waters
Run into endless valleys
With God's living flow

My first ever haiku

Since you have read and commented on so many of my writes you probably know by know that to me the rain is the greatest thing in the world
I Love The Rain!
It helps a restless soul relax so much
And its flow is just so peaceful and calming
Theres nothing I look forward to more than a good thunderstorm

I was really happy to hear from you again hope evreything is going well
The answer to your question about 2 writes is I just wake up with the ideas in my head and instantly I have to reach for a cup of tea and my writting pad

You take care of yourself
God Bless

  This haiku was VERY well written. I loved it. I don't know what else to say. I do think that this could be altered into an AWESOME poem though!

  It paints the picture it intended in the syllables allowed. I would say you are doing alright for your second shot. I am looking forward to seeing more of your work.

  it's very straightforward and that may be a good or a bad thing because maybe you should have us think more? but haikus are limiting so i still think this is a great one.

  well i've read both of your haikus...first off i'm not really into them in its hard to say i like it...there are just few people i've read that are really able to capture everything in such few words...haikus are hard to write...andi just feel...both of them could defently be extended cause they i dont know...i dont think they stand well as haikus but thas just my opinion...i'm just happy to see you posting...noodles and sour

  Sweet and to the point. But I cant help not feeling it. The trick in a haiku is to be profoundly emotional even with the limitations. Use a more dynamic and emotional range of words. Otherwise, good job

  I like it. I love rain.
I don't have much more to say. Haikus are fun.
This is the worst comment I've ever made.
P.S. Making it a longer poem would be a nice idea but I likeit as is. Sweet and to the point.

  I like it ...but sense i'm being honest
it would be awesome if you added more-all in haiku. you know like a poem made completely out of haikus...about rain. that would be really cool. However i do like said a lot within three lines. good job
