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! :)

as soft as her breath

large snowflakes upon

pink bunting









*my first attempt at a haiku without verbs

**Yes, it is subjective and does contain metaphor :)

Haiku Suite

Haiku 2 Do About U

Should I tell U how
Love 4 U within me sings?
Swinging scatted tune

Haiku About U

Sound brought me 2 U
Feelings for U clear and pure
Dulcet notes on glass

Haiku II About U

Time always 4 U
Time 4 Me? When U want 2.
Metronome off cue

Tru Blu Haiku

Customer Service
Counter for unwanted things
Symphonies in blue

Haiku What U Do

U caused me true pain
My heart a minor etude
Composed in lieu of rain

Blue Haiku N Rue

Silence with me now
Heart pacing on shards of glass
Strewn beneath its feet

Haiku 14

The dreaming highway,
a wide-open spacious life. 
Zero at the bone.

AN IMPROVISED HAIKU

AN IMPROVISED HAIKU

(To Maimounatou Abdou) 

Garouas Sun has risen now
Let it light and delight
Let me Princess of Beauties bow
For Garouas soft sun is at sight

A feathered cargo,
black shroud of migrating birds.
Mysteries abound.

What doesn't kill me
Neither does it make me strong
Always heal within

The Oasis- Haiku Trilogy

In the vast desert
I search for love’s oasis
My lips cracked and parched

There In the distance
The promised rest of your love
I stumble forward

The shimmering heat
I’m buried in the hot sand
You were a mirage

Nine haiku about one thing

And she picked it up -
The sleek black and white feather,
Threw it in the bin.

Black and white against
Unrelieved grey. Graceful curve
Against the straight lines.

A flash of beauty
In the gutter. Tidied up
To dull, gritty grey.

Mock Jasmine flowers - 
Beauty and perfume all lost
For neatly trimmed hedge.

Bright scattered colour - 
Gold and bronze leaves down the drive,
Machine blown away.

There’s a concrete path
Through the forest now. It’s grey
Stark, unwelcoming.

Remember? “You don’t  
Know what you’ve got till it’s gone.”
Paradise is lost.

We’re lost in a world.
Where Nature is untidy.
We’ve cleared it away!

She robbed us of it -
The sleek black and white feather,
Stole it from our sight.
