Haiku 1-3

She thought he was exotic,

as they were strolling hand in hand,

Thoughts he envisioned, were erotic.


I’ve searched far and wide,

my heart was open to be received.

I’m yours, if you decide.


Looking up at the stars,

I must have wished a million times,

and wondered where you are.


These are my first attempts at writing in this style. I am not certain, if I have done them correctly. Any thughts would be appreciated.

  1. Classic Haiku tends to follow a line beat pattern of 5:7:5 of 3 lines. Even the old traditional authors would vary this away into other syllabic formats at times. Subtle contexts would shift within verse. I like your stanzas here. Tells a story.

    1. I just noticed I meant, “are”, instead of “were”, on my third composition. I knew, there is a certain structure along with meter. I am n0t certain, but I thought the third line had to, be a certain statement, relative to the rest of the piece. I don’t know if I am saying that the way I mean to.
