Sandra Martyres

A Haiku Selection

A gentle wind blows
Across the meadows and fields
Tossing leaves around

Dark black stallions
Run miles across the farm land
Majestically

The squirrel hides nuts
In the hollows of the tree
For a rainy day

    Your haiku are so beautiful. I admit the ability to write one flees from me. There is no brevity bone anywhere in my body. It was left out at the beginning of time. (smile)

    The beauty of Haiku is expressed so well here Sandra. The words bring images to my mind
    instantly and I can see the animals amongst nature's bounty. 10 Karin Anderson

    This is a perfect Haiku triplet on unrelated subject, Sandra, and all are flawlessly written and expressed quite beautifully. You are the first person I have read in a good while to have written four consectutive perfect haiku poems. Most don't know the difference between haiku and senryu. Obviously, you do. Carl.
