Nothing Special [Haiku Flow Series: Vol. 1]

by Gordon C. Cardona

I’m happy to offer you with a selection of haiku verse that you might enjoy reading. If you’re unfamiliar with haiku, it’s a form of Japanese poetic verse which, unlike the traditional verse does not need to rhyme. The only rule Is that the poet captures his stream of thought by restricting him/herself to not more than three lines per haiku where the first and third line contain just 5 syllables with the middle one containing seven syllables. Traditionally, Japanese haiku has carried a seasonal theme and references to nature. Even if a good number of my haiku do follow a seasonal theme, there are a few which depart from the traditional topic of haiku. I started dabbling with composing haiku soon after I heard about this form on a radio program. After reading about its basic rules, I started writing and writing more haiku.

Although I’ve written poetry in the past, I found a lot of satisfaction and challenge when it came to writing haiku. Even if I cannot say I’ve mastered haiku, I sometimes find myself composing haiku in my head and struggling to get my hands on my phone or recorder so as not to forget how it sounded. In this selection, I am also including haiku which have a common theme and are related to each other. These groups of haiku can be a trio, quartet and one group has up to nine haiku revolving around a single theme.

Well, I will let you judge for yourself whether you like the haiku I write or not... But, Hope you enjoy!

Best,
Gordon
