A star rises east.
The sight of sun wakens me.
New start of journey.

Shining light speaks out.
What's your task for your siblings?
It lies in your hands.

We will go away.
So wisely take on your tasks
Before it's too late.


The author's comments:
I actually wrote this a while back its about taking care of our planet, recyling, and what not. And my writing teacher told me that this haiku could also pertain to different things in life so interpret this any way you like so it connects with you as long as you think its good (kidding). Rate this if you want and I'll like it if you respond.By the way this is actually an haiku other than like others 575 syllables people!!!

I can't stand it when people don't count syllables, and call their poems as haikus. Apparently, you can't stand it either :)

I really like your message, it gives people responsibility and power at the same time.

I like that-it sounds like you were talking to the reader then you got up and walked away-very nice. 5 stars captain.
