For Classic Haiku,
Katarain's critique's correct.
But this is Hatrack!

Levity trumps rules
verbosity trumps talent
on Hatrack forums.

Break the rules, but please
Educate the ignorant

Stop. Go. Stop. Go. Stop.
The Third Accident Today
That's I-880

Rubberneck All Day
You Never See The Gross Stuff
Yet Traffic Still Stops

Gets Your Attention
Twisted Steel and Flashing Lights
Like You See Most Days

Impatient. Urgent.
Should Have Gone Before I Left.
I Hate My Commute.

Foggy morning mists
embroider spiderwebs with
strings of precious jewels.

The thrushes rejoice
and cicadas sing love songs;
sunlight pierces clouds.

Ceiling fans attempt
to stir too-heavy air, but
the stillness remains.

We're in the process of moving-- so these are courtesy of me and my husband. [Smile]

Taped the china box
I just found a champagne flute
in the dishwasher
*
What is in this box?
Where is my inventory?
God, I hate to move
*
new box all taped up
Where is the blue sharpie pen?
Only one that writes
*
clear packing tape roll
end stuck down invisibly
many cuss words fly
*
This box almost full
Why is there never a thing
to fill that square space?
*
We have many books.
Will we also have many
hernias to come?
*
Packing in advance
Why do I want to pack the
toaster so badly?
*
Can we pack these yet?
No, we'll need them for showers.
Towels are important.
*
Wow, look what I found!
So that is where that toy went
under the bookshelf.
*
It would be helpful
if we could put the kids in
and tape the box shut
[Smile]

Multiplex Haiku

From sun's blinding glare
to cool darkness -- cell phones off!
The movie's starting.

Some roses are red
Violets are a shade of blue
Haiku doesn't rhyme.

(or if you pronounce "violets" with three syllables:)

Some roses are red
Violets are kinda blue

Had fish for dinner
not that anyone else should
really care about that.

Mild, dredged in bread crumbs,
served with mom's home-canned green beans
and some egg noodles

I'm not a poet
or that would have been poignant
instead of just lame.
