Looking Back

Have recently discovered Haiku poetry and am starting to use it a lot. Here’s just one of the poems I’ve created.

Today is National As Young as you feel day and this poem is based on my childhood memories of holidays in Dawlish, Devon. I only have to smell that seaside smell to be transported back there and relive carefree days playing on the sand and swimming in the sea. What memories do you have?

Haiku is unusual as it doesn’t need to rhyme although you can rhyme the first and last line if you wish like this example demonstrates.

Azure blue and gently roar

Waves wash in and leave best remember

Salty smell, childhood once more
