birthday haiku - two

as winter rages

passion bursts in with a smile

guide it through the storm


for Shawn Light.

another birthday, another haiku...

about the haiku: haiku is a japanese form of poetry that contains a metered verse in seventeen on (equivalent to an english syllable). generally, but not always, the english haiku consists of three lines with a five-seven-five syllable structure. the best examples of haiku paint a detailed picture using the fewest words possible, often only revealing a portion of the subject so as to give the reader something to ponder.
