Wrote my first Haiku in 7th grade. Don't recall it at all but do recall the English teacher liked it.

Best of luck for you,

Having difficulty navigating Neopoet or having trouble with an understanding regarding Neopoet? Look for the Advocate badge and reach out to an Advocate.

Good luck to you! (loved the "sparkling frames")

My attention is drown to this haiku poem well I think I like it

I've read some of your work and liked it. Don't worry about the language barrier. English is a difficult language and after all, that's the only language most of us know, including me. When learning any new language, practice makes it happen. Cheers!

I like it, I find it well put together. I am biased thought, because the first two lines are so familiar to me.

The most powerful reaction
of mind on mind
is transference of sight

Please tell me why my Haiku is "familiar" to you. I wrote this in 2016 on a lovely summer day spent at the ocean shore.

Thank you,

I cannot count the times I sat with squinted eyes watching the sun light sparkle off the ways in a cluster of brilliant gems.

"...in a cluster of brilliant gems" Beautiful.
