Words Haiku

Words Haiku

Words are difficult;

They don’t help you to use them –

And seldom play fair.


A Pain in the Occiput.

A Pain in the Occiput.

A Haiku in need

of a reader is a pain

in the occiput.

Seventeen words

In three syllables

how hard is that?

Ah! Not that easy

Perhaps I need to practice

or I’ll get it wrong.

Seventeen Syllables?

In my adding up.

Okay, you may laugh!

Not trying to be funny,

just writing Haiku.

What? About ‘Nature’?

The Haiku speaks of ‘Nature’?

Like ‘bad’ Sen-r-yu?

Well here goes nothing:

The Sun rises in the East

and we give our praise.

If only I could practice?

I’ll think about it.

Haiku for Nature;

a Tanka for love poems;

Senryu, funny.

Limericks, also funny;

Sonnets are for love poems;

Pantoums and Villanelles weird.
