Rookie (20 min's from the beach)

To the Sun (a Haiku)

The noonday sun
holds court in our galaxy
while earth spins her wheels

    I was looking through your poems, when I came upon this small treasure. What a lovely first. It is always satisfying to the soul to accomplish something one has never done before. Take care.

    Beautiful. But is a haiku strictly 5 syllables,7, then 5? Or just a wonderful idea expressed without excess? (in which case you have definitely succeeded) .- chuck (Report) Reply
