A Pathetic Poet’s 11 Attempts at Haiku

Haiku is basically a Japanese style of poetry which comprises of a three-line format with 17 syllables arranged in a 5-7-5 pattern focusing on some aspect of nature, preferably a fleeting moment, and usually suggestive rather than informative. A Haiku in English, however, vaguely refers to any short poem in English following the Japanese pattern to a greater or lesser extent. Haiku is both adored and hated for its brevity of expression by different sections, though that has not stopped many well-known English poets such as Ezra Pound and Richard Wright among others trying their hand at such an art and well, scripting resonating lines in the process.

I, though a pathetic poet, adore Haiku and have also made an humble attempt towards the same. Hope I do not torment too much of your being, here are 11 of my Haikus.
