Haiku

Several of the folks I follow periodially post haiku which prods the poet within me that has been on retreat for a few years...but I had to add one, at least:



Spiny gum tree balls

wait under elm leaves at night.

Why am I barefoot?

  1. I promise I'm not stalking you. I just posted a blog too and saw your new one pop up on my sight. This one made me laugh out loud.

  3. I am probably the least poetic person on the planet. Even a three-line Haiki overwhelms me.

  5. I attempted a haiku thanks to Dave's treatise reminding me how rich haiku is...but mine do not always bring a smile, I fear. Now go inside and put on those heavy socks your wife bought you and get warm.

  6. Perhaps because your arm is broken and you weren't able to tie your shoes?
