#NaPoWriMo – Day 2: Haiku


As I’ve been busy

what with a poetry gig

and preparation.


I will choose to do

the shorter poetry form

known as the ‘Haiku’


this means I can write

with the knowledge that I can

write more than a few.


haiku are serious

unless, you find, they are not

and mine, it seems, aren’t


which upsets people

especially, poets

and non-poet types.



and my running on like that

does not help at all


but, it’s what I do

and I am proud of that fact

for a fact it is.


‘over-egging it!’

is another cry I hear

from all my critics


but, do I care? No.

i will just keep on writing

Like I always do.


now, where shall I start?

oh, sorry, I’m out of time

And will end things here.

  1. There is a certain stuffiness around haiku… Not in these parts though!
