Sunlight - Haiku.

As the sun rises

The light of my world brightens,

Shadows grow darker.

    A fine write. Hope only the shadows grow darker, and not your night. In a positive way, I mean.

      Thanks Orchi, it is meant to be read however you would like to interpret it.

    • swingline

      If you added "So" to the beginning of the poem I think it would make it more reflective . Excellent words , great image

      • Goldfinch60

        Thanks for your comment but is I added so it would no longer be a haiku and I am quite pedantic where haiku and senryu are concerned.

      • BRIAN & ANGELA

        Thanks ANDY ~ Love your riposte to SWINGLINE ~ You have been hoisted with your own HAIKU ! What i would do is add SO to line ONE ~ delete THE from line TWO maintaining the 17 SYLLABI with a 6 6 5 HAIKU ~ A 666 is of course a Demon Haiku ~ TOUCHE ! Every 24 hours ~ All over the World ~ Sunrise / Sunset ~ There is a GOD ! Thanks for caring ~ BRIAN ~ OR "SO AS RISES SUN " # etc ~ maintaining the sacred 575 and it sounds more Oriental ! B.
