Thursday Haiku

The Sun

I smile at the sun,
The day becomes sunnier,
The sun smiles at me.

Its warmth gives me life,
Thawing the coldness inside,
A new beginning.

On a sun shiny day,
Sept 8th '11

* Starting from today until Wednesday 14.9.11, I challenge myself to write a Haiku a day. I am trying to write a thematic Haiku on life. Actually, I had never written any Haiku before I started blogging though I know what it is. It was when  my blogging reached a year old that I fell in love with it and tried composing some simple Haikus. I love reading Haikus which are short poems written in three lines of 5-7-5 syllables. Now, I am on a 7-day trial of a continous Haiku writing. Let's see whether I would be able to accomplish this personal mission! Stay tuned! :)
