Walku 98 (Tennyson)
“Water to the left…”
“Water to the right…”
“Into the puddles!”
Walku 99 (A Walk in the Woods)
“Along forest paths
Through the winding woods we go…”
“Daddy will guide us.”
Walku 100 (Rover!)
“What’s ‘Roverandom?’ ”
“It is a book by Tolkein.
It’s about a dog.”
Walku 101 (and Rover again!)
“What does this dog do?”
“He has lots of adventures
And goes to the moon.”
Walku 102 (Rover and Out!)
“Is he big and brave?”
“No, pint-size; he is tiny –
Smaller than you are!”
Walku 103 (And Really Out)
“It’s not ‘quantity’
It’s the quality that counts –
And it’s there ‘I’ win!”.

(AKA ‘An Englishman an Irishman and a Scotsman walk into a bargain basement)
United Kingdom Haiku (not technically a country, but I thought that as it’s where I am – I would make an allowance).
(Well, that is the first line done)
Green and pleasant land.
Where Angles once met
With the Saxons and did stay
It is not Saxland!
Ireland, to be sure;
Emerald green and Guinness;
Top of the morning.
Haggis; Robbie Burns;
Bagpipes and a warm sporran;
Porage with some salt.
Iechyd da! they greet us
Yakki Darr is what we hear;
Good Morning to you!
Northern Ireland Haiku
Lough Neagh at its heart;
Ship-building and the ‘troubles’
Bangor is pretty.
NB and if anybody would like me to put up a haiku of theirs for their country of the world (and we can put some up for states of America, counties of Uk and Ireland, etc.) let’s see how that goes, shall we? Graeme:) –

Walku 86 (Squirrel 2)
“I’m Squirrel Nutkin?”
“No, I am; and so’s my wife!”
“No – still don’t get it.”
Walku 87 (Dad – Again!)
“What is dad doing?”
“Just being Dad – he’s a bit…”
“That’s ‘one’ word!”
Walku 88 (Greetings!)
“Hello! Hi! Hello!”
“Hi! Hello! Hi! Hello! Hi!
“Can we lick you! Yay!”

Queuing Haikus (suggested by CFS) by Graeme Sandford
“Dad? Are we there yet?”
Me: “Nearly; it’s not far now”
I lied; Then she cried.
The heater it worked;
Hot air streaming out at me
as the engine boiled.
No. 3 (remembering I am in a long traffic queue driving in a car!)
A serene calm fell;
All around me there was peace –
As I fell asleep.
and follow it with another idea for a haiku that I have just had, entitled:
When the time I Have To Write Poetry is Short- I will write Haikus by Graeme Sandford
Which is also called (by me) the ‘Title Haiku‘ by Graeme Sandford
Title Haiku: is its also title;
But, this is is not the haiku that you were expecting:
That was in the title itself.
Such fun to play with a format or bend the rules a little. I am always up for having a playful go at tweaking my words to give added depth or meaning – or just because I am a cheeky type!
Seventeen syllables is a little short for some – it’s like being served up a polo mint (other mints are avilable) instead of the family roast you were expecting (just an example).

Walku 80 (NPD)
“Are we writing one?”
“National Poetry Day?”
“Yes! One each!”
Walku 81 (Vega’s Haiku – This Pup is a Poet!)
“I can write haiku;
That are full of sweet phrases –
And still chase my tail!”
Walku 82 (Haiku’s Haiku – It’s the Little Things)
“The trees are all tall;
The river is wide and deep;
Why am I so small?”

NPD Poem 1 – Haiku for NPD
I’ll write you poems –
National Poetry Day –
Here is the first one!
NPD Poem 2 – Poetry Rush-Hour Haiku
My Tweet just won’t Tweet!
The Poetry Highway Jammed?
NPD Poem 3 – Waving Farewell To My Children
My poetry went!
Off into the big yonder;
Where the wild things are!
FaceBook Status Poem
Paul Bickmore has suggested our statuses should rhyme;
And, as it’s National Poetry Day, it won’t be a crime;
So hone up your efforts, make them sublime;
Write them soon, we haven’t much time;
Polish them up, don’t give out the grime;…
And wish them good luck, or even “L’chaim!”
And give us a poem that is into its prime;
And if it’s ‘very’ good we’ll preserve it, not in quicksand, but lime;
And if it’s really ‘bad’ we’ll recite it in mime!
