Two Haiku

Strokes after midnight
received a distant sad news
a swallow has flown

Watch over us dear
I kept my prayers for you
frosted in flowers

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 must 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! :)

Anatomy of Life

The philosopher has blades;
He wants to dissect
the body of life.

Mirror Mirror



                                           My eyes becken ye forth
                                           grimace at your reflection
                                              As eyes tell no lies
                                       Peering beneath,your heart lights

But not lyrically deep
Case in point: Chris Brown.

Autumn

Strelitzias die.
Shrunken birds of paradise
sag between green leaves.

The Boss - Maybe Tomorrow

With the boss pulling and the workers pushing, with the Square Wheels on the wagon and the round wheels in it:

The boss views the path.
Roll forward faster better.
Maybe tomorrow...
