Perhaps I compose

Haiku from beyond the grave...


Nah, that's just silly!


...or is it?

Response to A Haiku a Day 2019-02-28 12:00:38


We're probably all,

Beyond some grave, are we not?

When the world is round

I think gravely but,

Why so serious! Life is

Meant to be enjoyed.

Filled with confusion

A hurricane in her mind

Maybe memories

The torment in all,

It rises and falls, and tries

To break walls down but


Fight it with swords! And

Violence and gore and you'll see...

Peace is all we need

Lemon poppy seed

Blueberry banana nut

Apple cinnamon


Filled with chocolate

Or maybe a coffee cake

Muffins I would make

Sun still lacks focus,

winter's grip brings arthritis.

Fickle skies tease warmth.

The Sound of Silence;

All Ten Thousand Fists will be

Down With the Sickness.


Indestructible

In the Land of Confusion,

The Vengeful One comes.


Are You Ready? Your

Perfect Insanity has

Been Immortalized.


Hell, The Best Ones Lie.

Hold On to Memories when

Lost Inside the Fire.


Disturbed concert tonight. Fuck yeah.

There will be no peace

While the Orange One resides

In the house of white.


Justice perverted,

All hail the god of money

Buying your damned soul.


Dig a hole deeper,

And then tell the sycophants

You made it greater.


I wake up each day,

Hoping that the Twilight Zone

Has set us all free.

Taking forever

The longest, difficult wait

Begging to be gone

Tired from the trip,

But happy that I've tread the

Sands of Malaga

Warmth of Malaga

Would be a welcome reprieve

From this great white hell.


Snow and ice, shredding

Winds, and frozen tornadoes...

I'm so over this!


Punxsutawney Phil

May have predicted early

Spring, but rodents lie.


Besides, who puts stock

In some stupid ground rat who's

Scared of his shadow?

Snow returned here too,

Back to bleak and disturbing,

Views gray and sleet rid.


Withering grass, cold,

No colorful catwalks or

Shell riddled beaches.


People in the mood,

Of the landscapes they live by,

I'd rather fly high.


On some other plane.

Far away from rainy days.

Hail great: vacation.

Warmth and joy in bed

But a haiku I must write

Out of bed for tea


*sip*


I am joining the haiku train. Hopefully I will get better at it!

Response to A Haiku a Day 2019-03-12 08:23:25


Warmth and joy is what

The daily haiku brings you!

Everyday hikes, too.

Join us for tea and

Stay for haiku! Or is it

The other way 'round?


Sadly, digital

Tea tastes like an electric

Current. Brew your own.


Or drink whatever

You have on hand! It's all good.

Just don't forget to...

i too, never got

how syllable counting worked

thank you cyberdev'l


tho now..,when writing,

haiku feels like broken Eng'

is it just me or .....

Response to A Haiku a Day 2019-03-14 11:30:28


Lost in translation!

Since haiku is Japanese,

English can seem odd.


They can say more in

The Land of the Rising Sun

With less syllables.


The word "less" should technically be "fewer," but hey...haiku. What'cha gonna do?

I think it depends

On how you use it, how you

Break different lines


The pauses become

Moments of reflection, when

Used a certain way


It's an art form by

Pace and formulation, not

Just the words themselves


But yeah it's probably a bit different with the language it was made for.

Aching consuming

Shaking uncontrollably

Burning to the touch


*sips water*


I've had the flu

A healthy body

Contributes to a clear mind.

The fog is lifting.


A sudden burst of

Creative inspiration

In the aftermath.


I've been crazy sick lately, too... Wat up wit dat? Feel better, y'all.

tides of suffering

flow of tears carrying me

sound waves of crying

The waves roll away,

Leave the world in turn to us:

Beasts of greed and prey.
