Haiku/ Day 12

Today, I decided to just settle for a haiku. Haiku is another one of my favourite forms of poetry – deceivingly short and uncomplicated, it is actually never easy to write. Sure, it’s not difficult to come up with a bunch of trite 5-7-5 syllable lines, but to somehow fit a whole lyrical world into that tiny form is a real challenge. I’ve written quite a few haikus so far, and I’m not sure the following one is my best, but here it goes, nonetheless:

Rain, turning into
A storm of rolling whispers –
Lovers resurrect.

I’m considering writing only haikus for the next NaPoWriMo… Now that would be a challenge!
