HAIKU’S

 

1.

On guard, high above

Waves crashing on rocks below

Mariner’s sentry

2.

Skies of azure blue

A carpet of pink petals

Japanese springtime

3.

Freya blows in, lashing

Whipping a wild whirling dance

Among the twisting trees

4.

Gareth’s grey seas crash

As Llandudno goats shelter

In the town gardens

5.

Hannah’s windy gift

Lays woodlands to waste

As March storms onward

6.

The stars in the sky

Guide the traveller homewards

On his tiring way

7.

The path was frozen

Icy patches begin to form

To trip the unwary

Creative Writing Latest Work

Each month the members of the Creative Writing group produce some quite talented work, as short stories, poetry, reportage, travelogue or in serial book form.  We thought, therefore, we would put onto the TU3A CW page some examples of our writing.

The Japanese form of poetry, the Haiku, which reflects the natural world, was one of the group’s themes in March, so to view our attempts please do go the Creative Writing page.  We plan to put on something new each month, and hope you will enjoy reading them.
