Haiku

Haiku

In the mood for a little poetry on this nippy Friday? Here's a haiku, a 17-syllable verse form that consists of three units of 5, 7, and 5 syllables.
A mourning dove feeds
in a marijuana bush
and sings a high coo.
Poet Ted Lawson

Here's a tortured love poem written years ago by yours truly

My breast an aching
wound where my heart used to be.
You tore it from me.

Oh to be young and in love, which sucks. I'm feeling cheery today, and you?

Here's a food haiku I wrote.

Damn, I have frozen
the celery yet again.
Limp stalks now sport beards.

So until tomorrow, take it one haiku at a time.
