Throwback Friday, My First Two Haiku, by Ivor Steven

Today I am presenting the first two Haiku poems that I ever wrote, and they were from May 2018. which is just under four years ago. My first two attempts were reasonably well received and the concise haiku format seemed to suit my style of writing, and since that time I have written another “118 Haiku”




Sky Blue (my 1st Haiku)

I’m covered in blue

The morning sky clears my eyes

Sea-air fills my lungs




Today (my 2nd Haiku)

Rain, hail, or sunshine 

The lover’s pen writes a line 

Inside a hearts shrine






Ivor Steven (c) May 2018

G’day, and welcome to my blog site. My name is Ivor Steven, I live in Geelong, Australia. I’m an ex-industrial chemist, and a retired plumber, and a former Carer of my wife(Carole), for 30 years, who suffered from severe MS. I Write poetry about those personal thoughts, throughout and beyond my life as a Carer. I’ve been blogging for over 4 years, and writing poems for 20 years. Of course a lot of my poems are about my favourite subject Carole, but since I’ve been blogging my writings have become quite varied, humourous, mystical, observational, and even a few monster/horror poems. View all posts by ivor20
