Happy  Haiku Friday everyone! I present to you today some of the best Haiku poems ever written. Enjoy!

Thick Blanket of snow

snuggling the flowerbeds

with a winter wrap



Heavenly Herald

Dainty daffodil

your golden trumpet fanfares

the dawning of spring




by Andrea Dietrich

A child plays alone

Watching from behind a tree

A predator smiles

Yellow butterfly

flying toward the petal

of morning glory




by Casarah Nance

When summer sun seeps

Lily of the valley sleeps

Rise in the midnight

    🙂 One of my all-time favorite haikus is:

    Haikus are easy
    But sometimes they don’t make sense

      Ha, ha, ha! Really Phil? At least it keeps within the right form for a haiku. 😛 These haiku presented today do make sense and are beautiful. Your ‘favorite’ haiku proves that writing haiku is not easy. Thanks for the laugh though. 😀

      You’re right about ‘Destiny’, Olga, but you know I had to add a dark one in there somewhere. 🙂 Have a great weekend! 😀 xx

      Hello Michelle! They all make me smile. Except for ‘Destiny’ of course but even that one conjures up good imagery. 🙂

    I like them all, Vashti, but my favourite one is “Winter”. I guess that’s because I love the Winter so much, and I’m a Winter baby.

      Hi Hugh! “Winter” is a very pretty one. You’re one of few people that actually say they love winter but winter can be a very beautiful season and look what gift it gave us––you! 😀 xx

    Love them! I’ve written many haiku’s over the last year. These are beautiful, and Destiny is creepy, but I like creepy. 🙂


    • Vashti Quiroz-Vega March 3, 2015 at 2:34 pm #

      Ha, ha! I like creepy too. 😉 Thank you Francine! 😀 Write a couple of creepy ones and I’ll showcase them here on ‘Haiku Friday’. Email them to me and I’ll do a spotlight on you. 😀 It’ll be fun.
