A quick Haiku thing

Because time is short,

and I have some things to do,

a real quick Haiku.

(I know, it’s a fix,

to write a poem so trite;

but, it’s what I do).

Once upon a Time… (extended)

Once upon a time…

some seventeen syllables

had an adventure…

They set out one day

to see if they could find them

a land, to unwind.

Once up on a time

some se ven teen syll a bles

had an ad vent ure

They travelled quite far;

until, one fine morn, they found…

Land of Confusion

a bles some vent had

ven an ure a se syll up

ad teen on time Once.

They travelled on.

Up and down they went,

until they reached a place called…

Land of Alphabets

a a ad an bles

had on Once se some syll teen

up ure time ven vent

They left that place, too.

Until, finally,

they crossed a deep valley to…

Land of Completion.

Once upon a time…

some seventeen syllables

had an adventure…

They had all got back

where it was good to be – home,

and happy again.

Once upon a Time…

Once upon a time…

some seventeen syllables

had an adventure…

Boxing Day Haiku

‘Twas gone Christmas Day,

and there were, all through the house,

left-over tidings.

When a Haiku Cries

You will know the sound

by the wailing and sobbing

of its syllables.

More Than A Haiku

I have a feeling

that more than a Haiku will

be too much for some.

Wetfriddy Haiku

It could be any

of the many days there are;

but, it’s Wetfriddy.

This is not a Haiku

This is not a Haiku;

it has too many syllables,

and doesn’t rhyme at all;

then there is the matter of the long fourth line,

and the short fifth.

This is not a Haiku;

and anybody who says it is…

… see above.

Thursday Towel Haiku / Senryu

“Where is your towel?”

the three-eyed monster asked me.

“Here it is!”

He ran.

Haikuna Matata

Now, don’t you worry,

‘bout a thing; ‘cause ev’ryting,

gonna be alright.
