Haiku -Enchanted Sprite

I am the rose’s
soft blush, shining through dew drops-
your enchanted sprite!

18 April, 2010

Haiku is Japanese lyric poetry, in which seasons, emotions, nature, find expressions in concise, numerically limited lines and syllables. The one above is in the 5-7-5 pattern. There are also 3-5-3 patterns. That is, threel ines, populated by words, totally making up 5 , 7 and 5 syllables in all. The breakdown, given below is thus:

I/ am/ the/ ros/e’s (5)

soft/ blush/, shi/ning/ through/ dew/ drops-(7)

your/ en/chan/ted /sprite!(5)
