R over at Randa Lane — Same Sex, New Clothes has been blogging up a storm lately, producing an eight part series on writing haikus. Now that R has published an index of the series, it’s time to go over there and get yourself schooled in this neat little poetic form.
In keeping with the theme, I present a few of my own haikus today. Don’t expect this to become a poetry blog or anything! Just having a little fun …
Wet and soft and colorless
Battered feelings on display
Butting fragile horns
Dark clouds of summer
Loose a torrential downpour
Seared by sunbeams
Okay, I think I’ve butchered the form enough. Definitely going to leave the poetry to the professionals in the future!
