Exploring Haiku Poems when I taught Writer’s Circle was one of my favorite activities. Some of the Haiku I offer today (the first and last) are examples from those lessons, as I would write alongside my students. The others are those Haiku that were inspired today by my previous writing. Although Haiku is meant to create a picture in the mind of the reader, I thought I would include photographs of mine that also served as an inspiration for my writing. I find that travel, color, and nature are my three main inspirations when I write poetry.

oooh, that volcanic crater jut might be my favorite. I’m so glad you write alongside your students. How fun for you. Happy New Year!
Thank you for the beauty of your photos and haikus!
Those images both poetic and photographic were just what needed on a dreary day here in Central New York. I’m waiting for my amaryllis to bloom. I particularly loved the photo of the clematis. Thank you!

Thanks so much! I grew up in Western NY so I know how gloomy the days can be! I hope you are now enjoying a blooming amaryllis! Enjoy!
