One single tear drop
Slowly dripping down my cheek:
Welcome salty rain!

HAIKU by Olga van Dijk

The Haiku is a compliment to the art,
which has a certain melancholy associated with the dominant blues.


Proudly part of my "(He)ART Beat" SOLO ART EXHIBIT at the
Drama League in Wilmington Delaware
(December 8, 2009 - January 8, 2009

Unfortunately this piece is hard to photograph,
due to the reflexion of the car paint chips.
Therefor I downloaded a second one, to give you an impression about the colors.


A little bit more info about HAIKU's:(creative writing)
Haiku is a poetic form and a type of poetry from the Japanese culture.
Haiku combines form, content, and language in a meaningful, yet compact form.

Haiku poets write about everyday things.
Many themes include nature, feelings, or experiences.
Usually they use simple words and grammar .

The most common form for Haiku is three short lines.
The first line usually contains five (5) syllables,
the second line seven (7) syllables, and the third line contains again five (5) syllables.

Haiku doesn't rhyme.
A Haiku must "paint" a mental image in the reader's mind.
This is the challenge of Haiku - to put the poem's meaning and imagery in the reader's mind in ONLY 17 syllables over just three (3) lines of poetry!
Try it: it's great fun!
