Family Haiku*

{Someone please help me! Try as I may I can't get my hard returns to translate in posting. There are supposed to be many spaces in this post!! Gah! What the heck? Anyway, here are three SEPARATE poems.}

1.What is beautiful?
For I have eyes for none else
He's what love looks like

2.Cheeks dimple-adorned
Painted with innocent smiles
Her laughter a gift

3.Recklessly trusting
And finding life in great bursts
Affection so earned

*Haiku in the loosest of terms.

Vocabulary Word of the Day:
EXPATIATE - verb - To speak or write at length; to wander freely

You could use "br" tag, which would certainly cause a line break. Have you tried that?

I'm not so good at html coding, sorry - but yes, I'd suggest looking into the code-mode, too.

I don't use code when blogging. I find I need to sometimes hit the enter bar three times when writing a post before the finished product shows up spaced correctly. I believe it's a Blogspot hiccup.

Nice haiku. I read some posts below as well. I think tragedy makes for good writing. The best writer I know, personally, is unpublished. His life was the worst I've ever heard or read about and he has a mastery of language, stories, that I've never seen before. I call him the Mozart of writing. It comes so easy for him, yet it's effortless and he'll never try to get published.

Btw, I love the classics. My favorite books aren't even in my century expect for one.

I really liked that line. I have to get better at accepting the truth of it and not focus on the in-betweens.

Struggling and Szelsofa - Thank you for the suggestions. I don't know much about html, but all my efforts in changing the codes have failed. It is frustrating. What does a break tag officially look like? I thought I knew, but they don't seem to be working.

Beth - Thanks for stopping by! It's nice that you remember me.

Jason - I hear ya.

So weird. In my edit screen it wouldn't let me out of html form, so I just went in and hit return a few times and it seemed to do the trick.
