Summer solstice poem in two haiku verses

Bent to smell a rose;
dew hidden in its petals
left my lips dampened.

Think that was the god
of summer, stealing a kiss.
Saucy young fellow.

This is the first time I hear of Haiku.
Nature, rythm...
Very inspiring, indeed. Very powerful.
Thanks Molly!
Like being in A Room With a View...

Heheh. I love "A Room with a View." George Emerson is positively ripping!

In Japanese they actually count morae (parts of a syllable) instead of syllables, but in English we can't exactly conceive of that, so we count syllables for our haiku. Those of us who aren't very good at poetry fall back on it as our "easy" form to use. :)
