Two New Haiku by Richard Stephen

After reading some haiku written by a couple of friends, I was inspired to try my hand at this very different form of poetry. I had written one haiku before which can be found somewhere on this blog. Anyway, I wrote a couple new ones but, being new to haiku, wasn’t confident enough to publish them. After getting positive feedback from my friends, I was encouraged to go ahead and publish them.

And so I have! My two new haiku, entitled Pine Forest – a Haiku and Hummingbird Heaven – a Haiku can be found on Hubpages. I do hope you enjoy them and your comments and criticisms are very much welcome.

It’s Clear to Me by Richard Stephen

Today on Hubpages, I’ve published my latest poem entitled “It’s Clear to Me.” In it, a man in love recognizes the signs of his relationship’s impending doom. I hope you enjoy it. As always, comments and criticisms are certainly welcome!

On a recent trip to the local mountains I happened upon this lone flower blossoming on the forest floor amid a bed of pine needles and cones. There wasn’t another such blossom to be found anywhere. How it got here I haven’t a clue and it clearly doesn’t belong in an alpine environment. Still, it made for a beautiful and pleasant surprise!
