My first Haiku

This image is so beautiful, I had to attach it. Again, I googled it. ;)

I pay the vendor
open the cage of birds,
they fly away in melody.

I enjoy reading poems. The words in poetry has indescribable magic, power, and strength. I have also found that writing poetry is convenient to capture the image and emotion at the same time. Because of its practical reasons, I scribble some here and there.

Although Japan is located right next to South Korea, I haven't heard of Haiku in my school years. From Blogathon 2012, I got to learn Haiku for the first time. I am literally amazed by its beauty. The idea of Haiku inspires me greatly. I have a strong sense that it will come across more often in my future writing.

My past led me here,
often I question why.
The voice in me answers: patience.

NATO landed in Chicago,
The angry mob shouts, marches, bleeds.
I ask; what are you really angry about?

Time kicks my ass,
Two minutes left to wrap this,
I should not forget my daughter's snack.
