Most often, the haiku is a representation of emotion, seasons. Haiku is to, with other 'media forms', draw a painting, tell of a dream, or bring forth a story. With haiku, the words, even rearranged should still convey the same meaning.

Here are my seven different attempts [with the 5,7,5] at the 'seasonal' haiku:

Summer sand pebbles
Torture, piercing, blistering
Beneath the bared feet.


Desert summer sky
White hot electricity
summer breeds, scorching.


Dolphins, blue and gray
arches lurching, seesawing
Summer's glassy seas.


Wilted parched dying
roses bend in prayer for rain
'tis a Summer drought.


Rainbows aft a storm
across a darkened rupture
August's gale ends. Soothing.


Songs, harbor bells ring
gulls laugh and mists fall
Shore of Autumn rings changes.


Hiss, warble and chant
winds of winter's adjustments
Tranquil, hush, hibernation.

<><>And two haiku with emotions:

Pride, gratified joy
Protectors, military
Sadness, mournful loss.

(this first one isn't what it's all about, too many words of emotions here, but the one word, military shows my feelings of all the above in today's times)

My second, and last, attempt with emotion haiku:

Larks singing verses
Flitting among the branches
Life's beautiful, I'm happy.

Retired, living in the coastal area of the Gulf of Mexico. -enjoying the sand and surf. I have these titles: daughter, sister, wife, mother and grandmother of two grandsons.

I enjoy music, movies, beach combing, pencil sketching, crocheting, and dabble in watercolor painting. My obsession: learning photography skills; birding along the Coastal Birding Trails in our area.
