Holding Haiku

Traditionally, a haiku is short poem that uses sensory language to capture a moment or feeling, and is often inspired by nature. Developed by the Japanese, the haiku has developed over time and now follows a 5-7-5 syllable pattern, broken into three lines.

I had a few ideas floating around in my head this morning, so I wrote a couple poems. Not traditional haiku, but they all have 17 syllables (I think) and they all go with the theme of “holding.” Enjoy.

To be held by you

Encompassed in your strong arms

Is bliss eternal


Here inside my heart

I hold your love for all time

A happy privilege


Everything feels right

When you hold me in your arms

I am safe, warm, loved


You and me, we are

Hand in hand and side by side

Together in love
