Poetry Challenge #6: Haiku

A haiku is a poem consisting of three lines where each line has a specific syllable count. First line has five syllables, the second has seven syllables, and the last has five syllables. The haiku does not have to rhyme. The form originated in Japan.

Here are my examples!


Light filtered by leaf,
the lark sings and tweets a round,
I wish I could join.


Nomad, he wanders,
backpack stuffed full and hair wild,
homeless and alone.
