The Haiku Challenge 2012 – Day 1 – What is Life?

by Vidya Sury February 1, 2012 22 comments
On Saravana’s invitation, I decided to participate in the Haiku Challenge. This means I must be faithful and post every day from February 1 to February 29 – that’s 29 Haikus in 29 days. Wish me luck, friends. Encourage me 🙂 I am more used to writing limericks and other funny verse.
So here goes – Day 1
What is life?

Sometimes I wonder
What my life is all about
“Love” whispered my soul

I love this haiku very much. Of course I will encourage you to write an every day haiku. Writing haiku is so … awesome and I am sure that this haiku challenge will be a good one for all the contributors.
