3 haiku about fog

FOG

They called it Pea Soup
Thick and yellow, blinding all.
Traffic has stopped.

MIST

The mist curls all around
Swirling like smoke in the air.
All colour has flown.

Autumn brings the mist.
Dampness fills the morning air.
Dewdrops on cobwebs.

3 Haiku about snow.

Probably not the best time of year to remind you of the cold, but here are 3 snowy haiku.

SNOW

Flakes drop gently down,
Turning all the land to white.
A magical sight.

Nothing can be seen.
Earth and sky blend into one
In the blizzard’s rage.

Waking in the dawn,
Mysterious light shines in.
It snowed in the night.

SUN

The warmth of the sun,
The gentle buzzing of bees,
Tells us it’s summer.

Scorching the desert.
Nothing can live in this heat
From the burning sun.

The sun smiles in the sky.
People smile on Earth below
To see him shining.

I hope you enjoyed these three more haiku. I’m trying to give different images of the kinds of weather, both positive and negative.

Do you write Haiku? If you do, let us know in the comments box. Perhaps you can post one for us all to see.

3 more weather haiku: Wind

WIND

March wind howls like wolves
Stalking herds of antelope
But I am safe inside.

Gentle breezes sigh,
Making all the flowers dance,
And wheat fields ripple.

The wind can destroy,
Downing trees and causing
Immense destruction.

I’ve tried to give different aspects of the wind in these three haiku.

Have you written any haiku? Did you find it easy or difficult to stick to the required format? I’d love to know what you wrote about and whether you posted them online.

3 Haiku

RAIN

I decided, a few weeks ago, to try my hand at writing Haiku. We’d just had a very rainy, wet winter and so I began with 3 about rain.

Gentle rain, sweet rain.
Pitter-patter on the leaves
Helps the flowers grow.

The rain hammers down.
It drenches the sodden ground.
Rivers overflow.

Rainbow in the sky.
The sunshine split by raindrops.
Glorious colour.
