Haiku! You’re Welcome!


This is probably
the only haiku poem
I will ever write

No, it’s not, I lied
plus, I’m breaking a rule–I’m
ending on a rhyme


can-you-haiku-webFirst line has five syl-
lables, then seven more, and
then five more. Boom. Done.



Haikus are supposed
to paint word pictures. Not this
one–it’s defective



“Haiku” sort of sounds
like “thank you” with your mouth full
I just noticed that


You’re welcome.

  1. Haiku: for explaining what Haiku is all about.
    Bound in English Lit
    Thought compelled to strict meter
    The barriers fall
