    Write a Haiku! #1

    Thanks to everyone who participated in our short story workshop last week!

    This week, I want everyone to exercise their poetic noodle and write a haiku!

    For those who don’t remember the format of a haiku, it should have 3 lines with the first having 5 syllables, the second having 7 and the third having 5 syllables again.

    As an example:

    I wanted poems

    So I created a post

    And hoped to inspire.


    So there ya go! And wait! We have a theme. this weeks haiku theme is: NATURE.

    1. I don't like writing the Haiku

    But here I go:

    Poking sleeping bears

    With sticks and stones endlessly

    Skedaddle or Lunch



    These mofos at the DNC can lick mah balls! I'm not voting or supporting their 3rd way goons.

    4. This is titled "The Gravity Game…"

    …and it’s in honor of my cats.

    Gravity is fun!

    Oh, you wanted that up here?

    Buy another one.

    Go placidly amid the noise and haste and remember what peace there may be in silence.

    5. With the GOP convention in mind…

    GOP want babies

    For more House Reps to serve rich

    Abort GOP

    6. haiku

    Snow on mountain tops

    Catch dawn’s rays as morning comes.

    Blast of brilliant color.


    Checking ice cube trays

    As the heat intensifies

    And kids wilt at play.


    Plants droop in the heat.

    Buckets of shower water

    Revive the garden.

    Invest in people.  Seek TRUTH.

    7. 6 months late:

    floating peacefully

    stranded on a sea of ice

    dreading reaching land


    giant orange pillow

    dozes in the big window

    soaks up sun, purring



    the key to relaxation

    i am the master
