Below is a little summary of the poem to give you a little bit more insight into my thought process.  Please read the poem before you continue with this post. I feel that it’s import to experience art.

The Silence Shatters

Haiku is one of the most beautiful forms of poetry out there. It is like a punch of imagery to the imagination. Its goal is to evoke emotion in a familiar and comfortable rhythm. The first line is used to set the tone and leave a question in the readers mind. The image of silence shattering is uncomfortable, because it offers many possibilities and directions. This is followed by revealing that it was the gulls who broke the silence, but at the same time they are breaking through the darkness of the night as they call forth the dawn. Both the coming light and sudden noise represent change and how it can both be predictable and sudden. Even though it can be jarring, it can also be comforting as we bath in the possibilities of a new day.

Thank you again to Prolific Press for all your continued support and thank you to those who inspire me to keep on writing.
