Haiku Rally

I am fascinated by the complexity yet the simpleness of haiku. I remember writing haiku in elementary school...carefully choosing words that would fit in the 5-7-5 syllabic pattern. I have recently rediscovered haiku as a way to pare down disparate thoughts and emotions into a mindful moment in time. Capturing a moment in 17 syllables. Here is my haiku for today:

Time Change

Extra hour today
Or so it seems this morning
Precious and fleeting 
Want to join me in capturing moments through haiku? I would love for you to share yours in the comment section of this blog...a grassroots virtual "haiku rally"!
