A Haiku

The only problem
with Haiku is that you just
get started and then
~Roger McGough


Woke up late
Need to start day for family
Blog suffers

In Pillar Place

Favorite Haiku:

Haikus Are Easy
But Sometimes They Don't Make Sense
Refrigerator


What's a Haiku to describe YOUR day?

=============




You Are a Couplet



You're not much for words, so you write a little ditty.

It might not be a novel, but at least it is witty.

I do love Haikus, love to read them, love to write them. A good school for word economy. Here's a Haiku I posted on TribalBlogs. Since the weather in Paris hasn't changed, I'll put it in my comment, too, if you don't mind.

'The streets are liquid
under the blazing ball’s stare…
A fountain sparkles'

Best to you!

Pool Beach Park Pool Beach
Summer's crazy schedule
Wouldn't change a thing

Happy Monday!

You Are a Sonnet
There's no way we would write a whole sonnet for you
So you'll have to just believe that our love is true

You are a romantic at heart with a beautiful spirit
You should embrace who you are and never fear it

Dieter, I know my Haiku aren't really true to form, but it's fun trying to squish an entire story into so few words. Thanks for sharing yours!

Keri, I want YOUR day!! *G*

Mom, no Haiku?

You Are a Limerick

It may seem simple to be so clever
But writing you is quite an endeavor
You are known to be a bit naughty
But no one would consider you haughty
And people will talk about you forever

I don't think so...

Here's my haiku:

Bit by a deer tick
Bulls-eye on my mid section
Antibiotics!

Rain on a Monday
Peace and quiet in my house
Time to write my blog

A haiku was left as a clue in the murder mystery I'm reading. :)

I could never connect to haiku in school. Although I do like to write poetry.

You Are a Sonnet
There's no way we would write a whole sonnet for you
So you'll have to just believe that our love is true
You are a romantic at heart with a beautiful spirit
You should embrace who you are and never fear it

I like it. *G*

I hope you're having a lovely day!
