Writer's Block: Sharing Haikus

The Japanese haiku poet Basho once wrote, "Old pond / a frog jumps / the sound of water." Try writing some of your own haikus about the little things in your life. A haiku generally consists of a five-syllable line, a seven-syllable line and a second five-syllable line. You can also use any combination of ten-to-fourteen syllables.


Wind blowing in hair
Joyful shouts and awed silence
Humpback whales at play


Reason for above Haiku? It's our last day at sea and we're heading south to Vancouver (Canada). The naturlist was having an informal disucssion with some of us on Deck 7 and the Captain tells us that there's humpbacks about a mile or two out on the starboard side. We all rush and sure enough there are! We saw various spouts but two whales breached! It was absolutely amazing.
