modern haiku

The poetry of
the wind weaves in around me
robbing me of breath

I really like this. It has the traditional Haiku form and mentions nature (which is usally the subject of Haikus) yet it has a modern twist, like the title states, and almost seems to be in the normal, free verse that most of our poems are usually written in. LOVE IT. And you! Keep writing.

YAY! The simplicity of this is beautiful and still captures an emotion, a moment... it's an example of perfect length - you don't always have to be wordy to convey what you want to. Just the way the words come together is beautifully expressive.
