Day #29 - 2012 Haiku Challenge

Theme: Journey

First of all I want to say how much I have enjoyed this journey. I came upon it by accident and suggested it to my friend, Striker, who writes Haiku so well. I myself usually write other forms so I have enjoyed the learning process.

I also want to thank you all for your comments and your encouragement. It has meant a lot to me.

A month long journey
challenges along the way
to perfect Haiku

What is the result?
Journey of twenty-nine days
Some pithy Haiku

A new season breaks
After winter's long journey
A robin feeding
