My favourite pastime:
crafting poetry in rhyme
but not so this time

Ordered by Debbie:
from your comfy box break free
haiku it will be

Debbie, what's with you
to rhythm and rhyme I'm true
I loathe haiku

I'll stay in my sphere
sans rhythm poetry's queer
Oops! I rhymed in here

    I can see why you directed me to this one as it is saying the same sort of thing as I was saying in mine...I can't understand why people get so worked up about haiku, or why people think it's so marvellous...a lot of it just leaves me cold, I find it rather dull and boring...the only time I truly enjoy haiku is when metaphor and imagery is used within it - ironically, the very things that aren't supposed to be used!

    Hello Delysia, thank you very much for enjoying my poem. Indian Ink, it is more than it reads. And thank you for pointing out mt T W. poem. I loved and Favorited his poem. enjoyed the humor in these haiku the first time I read them. Could not help and read them all over again. love the way you broke the no rhyming rule in haiku. :-) ...PD

    Don't be blue. Stay true to you. Loved this witty write, Delysia. How did Deb feel about it? I know she has very specific ideas on how haiku should be written. Frankly, I think is a way cool commentary on poetic forms and how seriously some folks take them. Brian's blog gets into this. Love, Carolyn

    I've been trying to spread my wings a bit too, Delysia but I too am apt to write in rhyme if left to my druthers. Thanks for your kind comments. Love, Joyce
