Title: Thoughts on Haikus

Thoughts on Haikus

I do not like the Haiku.

I do not like its style.

It heaps good words together

in a stifled little pile.

It is both coy and pompous,

aspiring to be deep.

Adjectival phrases flirting

to an esoteric clique

The truth is - I can’t write one.

My pen will not concur.

No brilliance in my word-craft!

I’m a beaten Haiku-er.

Haiku Poem 2.

Eeeny-meeny miney mo -

catch a Haiku by the toe.

Write of mountains, trees or weeds.

Adjectise them as you please.

Keep it down to fives and seven

under an Oriental heaven.

Make it barely understood

and all will say “How deep - how good!”.
