The Japanese have beautiful haiku and relatively recently began doing free form haiku that doesn't require a word the refers to a season. For those new to it, it consists of 5 syllables, then 7 followed by 5 more syllables. I make haiku sometimes, this is my latest: High e-string pulled tight Numbs pain of obscurity Sweet death by guitar. Do you do Haiku? Share some here if you do!

I enjoy a haiku from time to time though free verse is my preferred poetry writing voice. Quake Mother earth quivers turning over in slumber snores vibrate her core

Well, I don't have any beside me at the moment, but I like all types and forms of poetry! Especially the kinds that do NOT rhyme! I like the challenge of writing short stories, books, novellas and poetry. Have always loved writing in general and my grown kids all seem to enjoy that, too. We prefer to write "snail mail" and get a letter back to even writing online! Haiku is a special form of poetry that takes a real challenge! It can be a mind bender! Sure..I really enjoy it. It's like..serendipity when you can get it to all fall together!

I love poetry, too. I write it to relax and vent. It rarely rhymes, I don't think that's as essential as the flow of the words and the emotions they evoke. I love snail mail! You have something to hold and read and you can save it for years, treasuring the memory of that person, right there in your hand.
