Haiku's inspired by the Poetry of Bruce Lee

entry picture

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The fallen blossoms
Clouds floating across the sky
They blend together

Waves crash around us
The water becomes murky
Will clear by it's self

Bird sail purple sky
Finds the pink rose blossoming
Dawn purple to gold.

entry picture

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

So why do I write?

I am not a poet,

but I write a

lot of poetry.

 

So why do I write?

I write to

show my

point of view.

 

So why do I write?

Sometimes it's to

feel like I have

a small amount

of control.

 

So why do I write?

I write what

I feel.

But poetry

heals the

soul.
