So for the next little while I think I will be writing Haiku . Haiku is a short form of Japanese poetry. The poem have three lines, with five syllables in the first and third lines, and seven syllables in the second lines for a total of seventeen syllables. Mine may not be the typical Japanese Haiku, but might be slightly adapted to my style at times. I also don’t think they typically have a title, but mine will have titles.
A sea of yellow
Butterflies fly; Autumn speaks
Frigid old man wakes
He appointed the moon for seasons; The sun knows its going down. Psalm 104:19

Wow Wayne, not only are you an awesome photographer, but also a pretty amazing poet.👏👏
thanks and you inspired me! Thats my first attempt!
That’s pretty hard for me to believe—- that’s how good it was. Perhaps you should start posting some poems now and then along with your photos.
I’ve heard of Haiku but never understood it I’ve never walked in that arena.
Thank you Leola!
I’m sure there is much more to it than I do, but I’m keeping it simple with the 17 syllables. The first and last line 5 and the middle line 7—that will be about the size of mine.😃😃
and your Haiku is excellent Leola! Your a natural when it comes to artist expression!
Wow—thanks Wayne, I do appreciate your kind words!!
