The wren is small, but
Chest puffed out, with tail bobbing
His song is quite large.

I miss these haikus;
I'm sure you can do better,
so I bumped this thread.

Now everyone who visits

I do laugh at you,
But it is a mask for shame:
My haiku sucks too.

Memorial Day
Flags, picnics, parades, and work

Floors and walls are clean;
Validation! Silent, still.
Outside, the birds sing.

Hemoglobin red
Maple leaves splattered on grass
In shotgun carnage.

November rainstorm
Red maple shivers, naked,
Standing in spilt blood.

Fun to write haikus
If you can remember the
Number of syllables you have to use in the last line.

Oops.

Hallmark used to say:
"Part of me is what I give"
Yes! An arm and leg.

Like to think that love
Longer lasts than card's discard
Or weight gained from See's.

Flinging my winter
Garment of repentance on
The last hour of Spring.


City lights sparkle
On a moonless summer night --
Diamonds on velvet.


Bare skin glistens bronze
Toes peek out from sandal straps
And hairdos frizzle.

Kind of lame, really
Counting up the syllables
To make your words fit

Give me limericks
The dirtier the better
Or commercial ads

Or even blank verse
Which has no rhyme or rhythm
But still beats Haiku
