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.

    Very nice. I am the world’s worst haiku writer: I’m much too verbose. 🙂

    Why write this Haiku?
    There must have been a reason.
    I don’t know. Do You?

    I love the playfulness of this, Mitch; it’s a quality I admire and, at times, try to emulate:)

    My favorite haiku in all the world is Basho’s frog haiku.
    But I have to admit your American ‘kus come in a close second.
