#weeklyhaikuchallenge -7

Simple Guidelines.

Using the words “earthquake & ruins” or just one or the other, write a Haiku poem.

Haiku (also called nature or seasonal haiku) is an unrhymed Japanese verse consisting of three unrhymed lines of five, seven, and five syllables (5, 7, 5) or 17 syllables in all.

There is much more to haiku than the made-up 5/7/5 version.

Here is an in-depth description of Haiku – Senryu (also called human haiku) is an unrhymed Japanese verse consisting of three unrhymed lines of five, seven, and five syllables (5, 7, 5) or 17 syllables in all. Senryu is usually written in the present tense and only references to some aspect of human nature or emotions. They possess no references to the natural world and thus stand out from nature/seasonal haiku.

You can write your haiku poem any way you like not necessary the 5/7/5 version.

You can use the picture above, your own or no picture at all.

Copy and paste the link of your finished Haiku in the comments below. I will acknowledge them the following week, also share on social networks as I receive them.

September 2017 – Day 17

Was your hometown an economically advantaged or disadvantaged area?

There were no disadvantages in Taranaki, only opportunities, it is up to everyone to make a life for themselves, if they didn’t well that’s their problem.

The main reason for unemployment is that the urban area doesn’t like working the hour’s farmers do.

i.e.: working seven days a week, the hard work in the spring when cows are calving.

In my younger days haymaking was a very hard job stacking all the bales in the hay shed before all the fancy machinery was invented to make the job easier, but these days they make large bales that are wrapped as the baling is done, and stack away with a tractor.

September 2017 Day 16

Was your hometown a “backward” place or do you feel that it was progressive?

No, it wasn’t backward because of the farming community, all towns in the region are very friendly and helped the farmers progress because that’s where their income came from to keep their business growing, the farming community.

Taranaki progress was good, especially when the Maui gas field was discovered in 1969 also natural gas from the Kapuni gas field, which was discovered in 1959.

Gas and farming made Taranaki very progressive.

Dirt bike riding

September 2017 – Day 5

Where did all the kids “hang” in your hometown?

I do not know that answer to that question.

My children found plenty to do on the farm, when they weren’t helping us, they had their dirt bikes which many of their friends would visited with their bikes and go out to the back of the farm and ride, then return back to the house where there would always be something to eat before they returned back to their own homes.

Sands of time be mine
Leaves that falls one by one
Autumn of my wrecked heart
Revealing yet another art
A promising chapter yet to start

heaven’s rain by my window

cool water life’s dear nectar
gentle dew on morn’s saunter
