In seventeen syllables, a haiku verse
Can capture nature in its purest guise
In a brief moment, words often immerse
Our hearts in beauty that we e’er surmise

But can the sonnet, with its fourteen lines
Convey such grace with rhyme and meter’s force
It oftentimes, with both its strengths combines  
And holds its own in the poetry course

So let us celebrate these two great forms
And all the ways they help us to express
The world and life, its calm and all its storms
In verse that leaves us in its beauty’s caress

Haikus and Sonnets, a Poet’s dream life
A captured moment in nature’s way of life
