Shadow of spring day.
Rosebud perks gladly wistful.
Birds chirp in the sky.
This is my first attempt at a haiku!

Thanks, I am glad you enjoyed reading!

Well written but I have a query.
Why should nature be wistful?
Nature is lot more pleasant.
I prefer to look for smiles in buds and flowers.
Wistfulness of mind need to be lessened by nature’s lessons.

I guess I chose wistful because of being in the shadow of a day. Meaning, the rosebuds were longing for the light to return. They know it will return so they are “gladly” wistful. Thanks for reading!

Peace and natural beauty fill this perfect haiku. Thanks for sharing. 🙂
January 11, 2011 at 12:25 am

A lovely haiku you have written.

Thank you for your kindness!

Nice traditional haiku here – seldom see trad ones these days… think it would be even better without caps, without the full stops/periods (minimum punctuation is good), and a dash after line two, indicating the change/cutting/a-ha moment (subtle tho’ it is in this one). Great first haiku!

Thank you for all your help Luke! As you know I was a bit nervous about my first try at a haiku. I am so very happy you liked it! I will keep your puncuation tips in mind for the next time I write a haiku. Thanks again, you are the best! 🙂

WOW.. loved the ‘gladly wistful’ bit! Such a paradox… really cleverly used in this sweet haiku!
Well played, Nicole…
