Coffee Break Haiku

Post by HEPZIBAH » Tue Mar 31, 2015 12:36 pm

I've not dabbled with any Haiku for a quite a while. This morning however I seem to be thinking about everything in a haiku pattern.
Have you ever had a go at haiku? It can be quite therapeutic.

Dabble with Haiku
Place syllables in order
Japanese style lines

Wind blows through the trees
Trees bend their trunks in defence
Fences are blown over

Pot calls Kettle black
Kettle calls Pot demeaning
Wooden spoon whacks both

Fingers pound the keys
Keyboard remembers the strokes
Words form on the screen

Abbreviations
Shorten the language format
Do not enhance it

Daffodils shine bright
Sun strikes the bed of trumpets
Beech tree shadows all

Pink elephant moves
Through the many pages here
Wanders and wonders


Image Experience is not what happens to you;
it is what you do with what happens to you.

Cherry blossom falls
Confetti blown on the wind
Tears shed on pavement
Image Experience is not what happens to you;
it is what you do with what happens to you.
-Aldous Huxley
