Haiku: Bitterness

Bitterness lodged in

like shrapnel in heavy wounds

of sorrow filled scars.

  1. I wonder how beautiful Haiku is, you express every bit of emotion in three lines…..
    painful emotion in those words….

    I wanted to ask you, how do you write haiku ?
    I don’t know the format, hope you enlighten me on this one….

    • Thank You so much for your kind comments.

      A Haiku is a traditional Japanese poem that consist of 17 syllables; in three phrases of 5, 7 and 5 on respectively.

      First line has 5 syllables
      Second line has 7 syallables
      Third line has 5 syllables.

      All together that makes 17 syllables.

      I hope my explanation makes sense 😉

      • aha, that would take some time to understand…thanks for your valuable reply on this one…

  2. The very best haiku I have read in a very, very long time, Sherline! I applaud your choice of this photo, as well. A hundred lines would not amplify your message on bitterness held within any better!
