Tag Archives: Haiku

I couldn’t write anything good last night because cats. So here are some silly 3/5/3 haikus I was playing around with.



Birthday cake

Candle porcupine

We love you.



Can’t fit into pants

Man or beast?


Dog flaps ears

Animals do talk

We are deaf


Hostess frowns

Looks askance at me

I farted.













Haibun – Winter Maneuver


Winter  attempts an advance against fall. To one side of the road, a cold snowscape of white-laced grass, two-tone evergreens, ancient gnarled branches softly pillowed with marshmallow, a study in black and white. To the other, fresh grass scattered with the discards of the glowy orange maple, the radiant yellow fingers of the gumball tree, the startling neon red of the burning bushes. Winter is gaining ground against the bounteous color, blotting out the many-hued lawns with pure white primer, heaping icing on the trees’ heads. The trees, still warm and flexible, shake the wet snow from their glorious manes, spattering sidewalk and pedestrian alike with gobs of slush. Dripping sounds off from all sides, in full stereo. Splat. Splat-splat. It was not the sky, but the trees which rained.


Ever she dances

Nature’s unconscious graces

Embrace all conflict














Haiku – Blacksnakes

I had to comb through a lot of old FB posts to find this one! I probably could have rewritten it in that time…



Blacksnakes are oilslicks
Inky trails that slip uphill
And silently fade





Also, here is something random, but writer-related, which never fails to amuse me. Some writing tips can be gleaned from it. All I can say is, I’m glad Mark Twain isn’t around to review my book. Or maybe I wish he was. How could I get mad at someone this hilarious?
