Words - Haiku

Words are like lava
sometimes a red hot liquid
sometimes hard as rock

So true. I thought of one the other day but don't have much experience with this form, if I get brave I'll post it. From what I understand of it this one is quite good, but technicalities aside I just like it. Take care,

Bob

Simplicity...the ultimate art form. Sometimes so much can be said with so few words! Very good Glenn.

Yes, Bob... Forms are molds that keep perspectives...yet many times hold us from merely creating, and sometimes even from our greatest potential.

Peace.

Haiku! Bless me...

Indeed, right to the point. Words stay, Words cling. If used carelessly, are like weapons.

Cheers to this lovely Haiku, Glenn. Works as a powerful reminder to be careful with words. :)

Powerful imageries of words.

Similes are not allowed in haiku. I know, I know, this is one of those modern haiku...but when we take the form away from the haiku, what form is left that we may still call it a "haiku"? Haiku are more then just 5-7-5 syllable count. Anyway, I feel words are like artificial flavor...
