The Poetry Question

Discovering the Relevance of Words

Haiku Attack!

Haiku Attack!

This recent post by NPR got me thinking…

Why don’t I write more Haiku? There is no acceptable answer to this question.

Join me, writers, and stretch 17 syllables worth of muscle on this thread. Gimme your best haiku, or, failing that, three lines that sound good together.

    Do not write too much.
    One syllable too many?
    Unacceptable

    Here’s a haiku about waking up early in the morning:

    No, no, no, no, no,

    No, no, no, no, no, no, no

    No, no, no, no, no.

    Beautifully said.
    Its a universal truth,
    and easy to spell.
