Haiku 33

art in poetry
ink runs as blood in veins
efflorescence words

The Artist Awakes

Haiku as an art:
To paint a canvas broadly,
With tiny brush strokes.

Masks (of Hallowen)

Darkness uttermost
Howl gobblins, gooks, grinch and ghost
Dripping touch of night

Blood like curdled light
Candle tears, white serpents hiss
Shadowing the mist

Hell has broken free
Behind the masked jubilee
Of death's silent screams

Rats, pumpkins, dead dreams
In dried fairytales of leaves
Mark, our prank deceives

The shuddering knife
Not again, jack ripped his heart
With pale piper's fife.

Not heaven nor art
The cold merriment, a wheeze
Of dark wintry breeze.

colors of pumpkin

colors of pumpkin, 
vermillion and deep gold---
    veiled mysteries air

branches intertwine
in a sea of canopies---
    harvest moon rises

gilded by the dawn
and swayed by a seasoned wind---
    shades of art abound

CITY HAIKUS


This garden city
Concrete skyscrapers loom;
Greenery punctuate


Tree-lined avenues
Bourgainvillea clusters;
Traffic jam companions


Waltzing slowly
Overhead bridge;
Ant-people below


Old neighbourhood
Heartland community;
Ageing populace


Feeble old lady
Speeds on wheels;
Electric commotion


Playground
For small kids and big;
Noisy charades


Fitness park
For young and old;
Fighting spirit


City side walk cafe
Crowded after hours;
Beery happy hours


Noticeable absence
Dry spell ending;
Sudden torrential rain


Umbrellas raised,
Parasols  hoisted;
Too late this drenching


Side walk cobbler
New lease for old shoes;
Assorted wears


Hyper art queue
Long-winded delay;
Fussy customer


Bank ATM await
Ready to dispense;
Urgent pocket money


Office podium
By shopping mall;
Buzz of human traffic


Downtown hype
Temptations galore;
Mostly unnecessary

Snow Flakes

cold winter's delight
icicles of flowing art
flakes in slow motion

The Art of Divorce

Gold rings once the same
like circles around the sun
that sets into dark.

The boxes packed some china broke.
No more Holidays with your crazy folks.
Your new address is off by a number.
Where are all your things for your first night slumber.
There they sit out on the porch as the rain sprinkles to a soak.

All words promised and spoken so strongly..
Off you go as another will not treat me wrongly..

haiku fanatics

haiku fanatics stifling creativity laying down the law inflexible minds smothering self-expression toeing language lines simile is out personification too metaphor's a crime icicles are fine as long as they aren't crystal and they mustn't rhyme ripping haiku rules rebel verse must be contained I should be ashamed! wonder if Basho stuck rigidly to the rules observed tradition? haiku from the heart give metaphor wings to soar let the words fly free oops I do believe this is strictly senryu not haiku at all!
After reading all sides of the haiku debate about how it should be written and indeed beyond haiku and into the writing of poetry in general, I really only have this to say: life is not perfect and if art imitates life it stands to reason that poetry cannot be perfect either. I think the writing of poetry suffers from perfectionism and I find that the more I read about the rights and wrongs of writing, this technique and that technique, this form and that form, the more of an inhibitory effect it has upon my work. Life is constantly changing and evolving and therefore poetry should do the same. What is being published today at the cutting edge is mainly modern haiku and free verse with a definite shift towards more rawness and edginess and I welcome that. Life is not perfect and has very little rhyme or reason, so how can it possibly be captured in neat little stanzas and strict syllable counts? And so when writing haiku I will write my own version of it, what personally pleases me and what I'd like to read myself - I've ripped up my rule book. :-)

This chain of haiku was inspired by one of my art activities in school. I've also done this at home. The picture of one of the Grass Head projects that I've made is my avatar ( but i think a little bit scary looking it from a distance, lol). To know more about it or have a clearer view, you can search it in google with this title, “Grass Head” Thank you so much for reading. I hope you've enjoyed.
