Haiku Prompt - Building - Share your poems

This is the second haiku prompt I've shared on here and I'm hoping to make this a weekly event. The comments for this post will always be open, so even if you can't post your haiku or poem today, please come back and share later.

Here's what I wrote this week:

Seasons sweep over
Roof timbers and red plank walls
Securing history


Plastic bricks clicked tight
One on top of another
Model pyramid

I can't wait to read your poems. Don't forget to visit the other participants and leave them an encouraging comment.

Now for a bit of technical stuff. I'm not in love with Mr. Linky yet, so I ditched him for this week. Please leave your permalink in the comments of this post, so we can find your poem.

What's a permalink, you ask? If you click the title of your haiku post on your blog, you will notice that the address in the address bar has changed a bit. This is the permalink. Copy and paste that into the comments here and that way visitors can always find your poem for this prompt.

Want to make a real link in the comments? To do this you need to use a little html code. It is easy to do - I made it work yesterday, so it must be easy! For a great explanation of all of this, go to Luke Holzmann's blog.

I especially like the second one :) I didn't get around to writing one, given the no-napping going on at my house these days, but I kept your prompt "new" in my Bloglines account to remind me to get to it, hopefully this weekend! :)

Just stopping by for a few reasons but FIRST...

Love your haikus! Especially the one that I'm assuming is Lego inspired! Great stuff!

Second, you totally made my day but mentioning that you actually got a book because of my book blog (the Ueland book). I am glad that you are liking it).

And I hope you do MamaKat's writer's workshop. They are so much fun to do!

And thanks for the link information. I may be using it for an upcoming post and I've heard that Mr. Linky can be a bit unreliable.

Have a great day!

Haiku always tends to capture something very big, ubiquitous through something very small. However, the big and possibly universal thing which is being captured must be clear

I just wrote my first poem. No one ever taught me how to write a poem and I don’t know if I did it right. Could you please read it and tell me if it really is a poem? If not, how do I turn it into one? Is it any good? Thanks for your help.

Here it is:


I hear a noise,
I stop and cringe,
A shadow passes by.

I cry for help,
But no one hears,
And so I am alone.

Once I was not alone,
Once I was loved,
What did I do wrong?

I sat on their laps,
They stroked my fur,
I thought it would never end.

Then came the kittens,
Inside me they grow,
I just want to keep them safe.

But then came the box,
So dark and small,
The drive, the fall, all alone.

The shadow comes close,
It darkens, it falls,
I am just to weak to care.

Cold and tired,
Confused and alone,
I let the shadow take me.

Back at home,
Warm and safe,
My family sits around a tree.

Together they open gifts,
They laugh they sing,
They think not once of me.

Their lonely cat,
The one who loved them,
The one they abandoned
By the side of a road
