Poetic Wednesday: Life Haikus

I thought I’d try my hand at haikus this week, so I have a series of four to share with you!
If you don’t know, haikus are 3 line poems that follow a 5-7-5 syllable pattern. 🙂




Birth

Finally arrives
Innocent, bright, sweet, and pure
But that won’t last long.

Adolescent
Wants independence
Rejects the love of past years
Searching on her own.

Adult
Regrets her mistakes
Working hard to make amends
Is there time for fun?

Old
Enjoys golden years
Precious time to live in present
Knows life is a gift.
