Spring Haiku

A new spring unfolds,
Who knows what this year holds?
Dreams, like sunbeams, shine.

Spring Haiku- My Humble Comment

A three line poem that is meaningful
Instead of writing a long confusing one
The poet has penned a simple beauty
I must acknowledge this as superb.

Humble Haiku

Hi Mvvenkataraman,

Long and confusing poems have their place,
But poems both meaningful and concise,
Can sometimes present a refreshing pace;
Thanks for your comment - it was really nice.

I love haiku, and enjoy writing contemporary English haiku. While I try to maintain the five-seven-five format, and the use of seasonal references, I also like to add some rhyme, and I tend to sometimes forgo the concepts of fragment, phrase, and juxtaposition. Heh. I'm just thrilled that someone enjoyed my poem enough to respond - thank you so very much. I am grateful for your kind feedback. Have a great week, take care, and best wishes.

Warmest regards,

Chris

Hope and Positivity

Dear Paul,

It's always wonderful to hear from you, good friend. Thank you so much for your kind and complimentary response. I'm grateful to you. You hit the nail on the head - this poem is all about positivity, with a hope to inspire. I'm glad that came through. As you know, spring is viewed as the start of the year in Japan (school, new jobs, nature, etc). What better time to embrace one's dreams and ambitions. My dreams are indeed of poetry and novels, and I hope to have more time this year to read and respond to others as well. Wishing you all the very best, and praying that the sun always shines upon you, too.

Warm regards,

Chris
