The Poetry Question

Discovering the Relevance of Words

Do You Haiku? -OR- 5/7…13?

Seeing as today

is an incomplete haiku

let’s 5-7 (5)

write your best haiku

(or maybe your favorite)

for all to enjoy

How to write haiku:

organize your words and thoughts

to 5/7/5

I have always had an affinity for the haiku form. I’m not sure why. I do know it can be fun to have entire conversations in Haiku… especially if you don’t tell anybody. Seeing as today is 5/7, let’s add the final 5 and have some fun writing Haiku. Anything brilliant will be praised and, perhaps, rewarded!

    Writing haiku is
    Serious business today
    Check the date, brother

    Making my coffee
    I become rebellious.
    Screw the damn filter.

      Very nice haiku!
      my love for morning coffee
      negates rebellion.

    The sub spilled coffee,
    so now I’m stuck covering,
    instead of napping.

      coffee- so precious
      a spill is not permitted;
      I am not BP.

    Why yes- I Haiku.
    Penning my wishes and dreams-
    Meanwhile, they all sleep.

    the chance flies swiftly
    the day has turned to ashes
    Here the night has gone

    The raindrops fell from the clouds
    Beautiful inside itself
    It’s spring time again.
