Haiku - sunrise

Dark fades to pink
becomes orange and red
- day breaks blue.

I love this, especially the last line. No photo needed: Your haiku sets the scene.

I really like this haiku--I'd never thought about the day as being a transition between so many different colors.

I've also been enjoying scrolling through all of your other lovely poetry!

This is exactly how our sunrise looked this morning as we traveled to work. Beautiful.

Perfect choice for this theme and that last line was great.

If you can write a good ku, you can write.

This is a good ku.

Very nice Crafty. I love the colors in a sunrise.

Thanks for all your comments. This time of the year is lovely for beuatiful sunrises and sunsets, sometimes it almost seems as though the day is just one long sunrise...

Novel Nymph, I'm not actually nearly as crafty as I'd like to be (or as you think I am?)....

Jblack - I'm glad you think no photo needed but I would love to be able to capture sunrises like this one on camera....

Cate - thanks for taking the time to scroll through all my poetry, its nice to know that the older poems aren't lost....

Rethabile - glad you think this is a good ku, I keep trying....

We had a similar sunrise this AM. I love the simplicity of the scene.

It is happens so slowly and subtly that we are always surprised when it inevitably happens.

This isn't a correct haiku!!! 5,7,5!!!!!!!!!! not 4, 5, 3 But otherwise very good! I could imagine it so easily

nglish language haiku are 5-7-5 or less, the syllables in English beingh different from those in Japanese. Browse the links here under Hauku to find out more or contact any English language literary haiku journal
