Writing 201, Assignment 1: Haiku


Another brilliant blogging U by the wonderful team at Daily post. With the prompt for the day being “water”, I had to whip up a Haiku, and throwing in a simile for good measure. Enjoy!

Heaven opens up,
It bleeds, Like broken mirrors.
Earth surrenders thirst!

  1. You have done a great job here! I especially love the last line! Great personification! I’ve taken 3 poetry courses at the University of Tampa where I recently got my BA in writing with a minor in professional & technical writing. However, my favorite was Poetry II where we didn’t have to use rhyme or meter, lol. I’m more of a creative nonfiction gal, but thought this could be fun. 😉 Have fun! I look forward to reading more of your poems! Blessings!

  2. Still thinking about your haiku. In some ways it’s like a person who has been confronted with who or how they really are. That realization has broken upon them and the fallout is thousands of mirrors where they can see themselves for who they are raining down on their head. Finally, unable to fend off reality any longer, they surrender to the truth they see in the mirrors.

    You probably didn’t mean it that way, but it kept working in my head till that’s the picture I got!

    1. That’s a really interesting insight into it. That’s what amazes me about haiku, it’s so brief but can contain such depth. That’s a a very thought provoking look at the piece. Really appreciate you sharing, and I’m really glad the piece was able to stick with you
