I love to write haiku! If I can’t sleep, I create haiku. If I have to wait in line, I haiku my way through it. If people annoy me (hardly ever happens), I calm myself with haiku. So of course I have to publish them occasionally, even though this is primarily a cooking/gardening/lifestyle-ish blog.
5-7-5 is my natural rhythm.
Did you know that the plural of haiku is…haiku? Here’s a haiku hack about that.
Just one: it’s haiku.
But what’s the case if it’s two?
It’s still just haiku.
Two Haiku from the Medicine Cabinet
I Took an Aspirin
Headache fades ’round the edges
I Took a Natural Sleep Aid
Fanciful, horrible, weird
Happy to wake up
More of my odd writings are available via my Words page.
I’d love to hear your haiku, if you’d care to leave one in the comments. And here’s haiku blog that I really like: The Haiku Diaries.
