National Haiku Poetry Day April 17 2016

NHPD

You have the freedom

To speak what is on your mind

In three lines of course

And using only

The seventeen syllables

Makes you choose with care

Painting the picture

Describing to another

In hopes that they see

What is on your mind

In a way that makes them think

Of what’s on their mind
