Haiku, Poetry

Evening Haiku

Somewhere else you said,

as if we could drop it all

and not miss the shards.


It appears that I have done a complete turn-around when it comes to haikus. They are still not my favourite form to write in, but they have a conciseness that I rather like and they work well for short posts on days where I haven’t really felt like picking up a pen. I also leave them in comments now and again, just to change things around from the average “this is good” or “I really like this.”

  1. For reasons unknown
    Haikus speak to me in ways
    That other forms can’t

    For me, I would say that haiku is probably my favorite form of poetry. I must admit, they do work very well for comment responses, especially when responding to another haiku.

Please take the time to tell me what you think, I love receiving feedback. :)
