  1. Here is my simple offering for Mother’s Day, three Haiku poems.
    Haiku poetry has strict construction rules. Each poem has only three lines, 17 syllables: five
    syllables in the first line, seven in the second, five in the third. Haiku is used to communicate a
    timeless message often achieving a wistful, yearning and powerful insight through extreme brevity
    the essence of Zen.

    (Do you think that my Haiku are… “sublime”?)

    My Mum is yummy. A bond eternal. Our genes are common.
    I’ll always be there for her. Motherhood changes your life. Mother love should be for all—
    Here’s a big hug! You’re one with the Earth. With shared genes or not.

    *** Happy Mother’s Day ***

  2. Thank you, Connie, for your sublime Haiku. Your contribution to Mother’s Day is now appearing as follows, after a little magic is applied by SoundEagle:

  3. Many thanks for your “magic”, SoundEagle. In any case I’m also pleased to see that lines of the same length are almost interchangeable, like Lego blocks. 🙂

    (Perhaps in the last Haiku, I might suggest that “for all ” could be in the next line, so that the em dash immediately follows the phrase). Thanks again!

  4. Here is one that another friend of mine (Daryl) wrote, I like it even better than mine because it’s funny:

    ” Writing a poem
    With seventeen syllables
    Is very diffi….. ” XD
