Haiku with a Stolen Pen

This was the sky at noon today.  I briefly regretted not having my D90 with me but remembered David saying, “the best camera is the one you have with you.”   So, this is the noon sky as captured by my camera phone. 

To spice it up a little, I decided to write a Haiku.  Random, I know, considering I haven’t written a Haiku before.  I had to steal a pen to do it, but felt it was worth the petty crime.  If you’re not familiar, Haiku is usually three short lines. The first line contains 5 syllables, the second line seven 7 syllables, and the third line contains 5 syllables.  It doesn’t rhyme, and should create a mental picture.   Here’s my first attempt…

Empty cobalt sky
Brush a white seraphim dance
Heaven turns canvas

    Lovely photo…David is so right! And I am truly impressed with your haiku. I’m going to assume you write poetry because the imagery you use is truly poetic. A perfect marriage of words and picture! 🙂

    1. Thanks, Caryn! I’ve only recently started writing any poetry. As I mentioned to Mike, it’s good writing practice, and it’s kind of fun trying to pair with a picture. 🙂

    That is a wild sky – glad you captured it. And I like the haiku.

    1. Thanks, Mike. I think Haikus are actually good writing practice.

    Camera phone or not, still awesome.

    1. Thanks, Nigel! I think my camera phone did a good job. 🙂

  4. I wanted to be more serious, but I just had to include the stolen pen part!
