My first attempt at HAIKU
































apple fell on head
while sleeping under the tree

Newton ,discovered the principle of gravity. 




































went for a bath, water dislodged

Archimedes ,said Eureka!!

A principle I've thought



























watch in the pan, egg held in hand

this is how inventions

on this earth land. 







































kettle begins boiling

steam comes through

Watt, says OH!!

a theory gets proved.




PS---hope they are HAIKU ::)))) ----haiku of 4 lines is called HAIKUA:))

  1. very well attempted, Rajni. Though a typical haiku doesn't exceed 17 syllables(5-7-5). but don't bother about that, one learns that with time. (I am still learning).The way you have put them together is awesome.

    "watch in the pan, egg held in hand

    this is how inventions

    on this earth land."

    I loved the way you rhymed it! Keep writing!!

  9. Though I love your theme - the human thirst for scientific exploration - I'd like to point out that haiku do not exceed 17 syllables. Also, they don't rhyme.

    Brave first attempt! :) Keep going. Once you get the hang of it, this form is quite fun to play with.
