On Gossamer Wings

Dreams above the sky

Hope flies on gossamer wings

Life, hope intertwine

Every now and then I enjoy the simplicity of the traditional 17 syllable Haiku.  The 5-7-5 formula just works for me, sometimes I think my thoughts think in 5-7-5 syllables all day long, little pieces of words that run across my brain, sometimes I take notice and they make sense, sometimes I ignore them and they keep right on running until they run into the Nothingness.  Someday I will write about the Nothingness, but not today.

Wikihow explains Haiku like this:" Haiku are short poems that use sensory language to capture a feeling or image. They are often inspired by an element of nature, a moment of beauty or a poignant experience."  

They might not make sense, but they will always make you stop and think.  Love to All.
