Malcolm Muscat Rodo (MrRodo) Mask to trick and fool
Conceals my truest nature
From myself-

message 3: by Malcolm (new)

Malcolm Muscat Rodo (MrRodo) The beauty of night
With calm breeze and evening sky
I see no stars-

message 4: by Malcolm (new)

Malcolm Muscat Rodo (MrRodo) A breath taking view
Is hidden behind the scene
Of apartment wall

^ This one was kind of a 'joke' haiku, just to get a third one out there (cause 3 is awesome) But nonetheless I still think it has relevance. Haiku's should not only be about nature but about modern world problems too.

Jean (otakumom) Love them all! No worries about the subject matter. This is post your own -- Your creativity is your only limit! ;)

Malcolm Muscat Rodo (MrRodo) Spent about an hour in the garden today, derived some Haikus while enjoying the nature around me ^.^

A single breeze
In the eternal forest
Disrupts many trees


A mosquito waits
humbly to strike; when it fails
it tries again-


The tallest of trees
prospers most, but endures
a greater hardship

The scent of acetone
envelopes the room,
I sniff a second time-

Jean (otakumom) Thanks for posting!

I can picture the mosquitos buzzing while the air is filled with acetone. ;)
