Water – A Haiku

Water from the head,
nourishing parts of my soul,
moved down my naked.

I stood in the shower, trying to brainstorm philosophical thoughts to write something about Water. Many a thoughts popped in my head, and made the ten minutes worth a lot. Soaking myself with different rhythms that has been ringing within my head for the past few minutes, I came across another word in the course mail.

So, this here is my first attempt at writing a Haiku– a Japanese poem of seventeen syllables, in three lines of five, seven, and five. And the first submission for #IntroToPoetry writing course at DailyPost.

You only live twice:
Once when you are born and
once when you look death in the face.
– Ian Fleming

Have you written a haiku yourself? Do share it and your views on mine!

  1. Hey Udit!

    Your Haiku is stirring and has an unearthly appeal… detached in nature but yet so connected. All I can say? – You are now cleansed! Haha! Here is my shot:

    If every pain only
    Ends in suffering, then I
    Will Learn to survive.

  2. I find Haiku and Tanka quite challenging. I tried a tanka for my poem for the water prompt.
    I loved your Haiku but felt the last line was missing a word. Moved down your naked what?
    moved down my naked.
