I am trying to write a Haiku for every day of this month. I wrote Summer Birds on the first day, yesterday I wrote:
Leaf mulch and bare bark.
Faith went the way of Winter
without Spring for hope.
and today I have:
You’re my thunder dusk
following heat clogged daylight.
I listen for you.
I find writing haikus a little bizarre. Why?
I don’t actually know if I like them…
Haikus never feel as if they hold enough when I read them of write them. I can find some crackers and think “wow! I really like that!” But it remains the same for the vast majority of haikus, I simply feel that they don’t suit me.
So I’m trying to write one every day for a month to see if my opinion changes.
How about yourselves? Are there any poetic or prosaic forms that simply stick in your pen? I would be interested to hear if anyone else finds themselves in a similar situation.
