My feet hit the snow as
I walk, the wind blows, homeless
Through trees and my heart

Beautiful and solemn haiku. The imagery and meanings behind are so full of different meanings. I love this.

I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
- Maya Angelou
When i was little/I used to point a chubby finger toward the dark sky/And ask my father/why some stars moved and others didn’t/He would laugh and explain that some were airplanes/I still wish on them today ~ Laugh-It-Out
The feathers of a crow are black/The ink of my pen is blacker/The pain of my heart is blackest~ Mckay
If love produced a blossom/I’d take it in my palm/What a blessing, the bright color!/How soothing, such a balm!/I’d keep a petal for my own/The rest, drop from my hands/For such a flower would multiply/And populate the lands~ thesilentraven
And I began to rival legends/Long entombed before my birth./But for all my much envied fame/The lust for more would not abate./The plaques and prizes with my name/Will, like all things, disintegrate. ~ TheEpic95 now known as Helena_Noel

Hey firefly116! If you're still looking for pure form sonnnets or Haiku to read. Read some of my newest. I think the new ones of mine got VERY properly categorized. At first I used to get so annoyed by bad categorization on here too, but then I learned to live with it. Anyway. I'd love it if you read and told me if you like my sonnet umm wait let me name one for you so its not an agony for you to find one. Oh there's two new ones. "Time: the B*tch" and "welcome winter, my love". Not that new but new in my posts :P The rest are mostly in Haiku form.

I liked this Haiku. It was very dark but very pretty at the same time. It all fit together very well. Nice job!(:

I really liked the idea of homeless wind. An area for improvement would be to remove the as in the first line. With the as it is not the correct format for a haiku. The last line was worded beautifully. Great job.
