“What is a Haiku? It’s a Japanese poem with three lines (5 syllables, 7 syllables, 5 syllables) and is traditionally about nature. However, my Hump Day Haiku can also be called Haiku that Hurt! Or Hilarious Haiku… or err.. at least I think they are funny!”
I’m putting the Hump Day Haiku button just on my post now, but hopefully I will have it form part of my main buttons on my 30th post, a challenge to myself to keep at it.
Did I tell you that I am a published poet when I was in elementary school? Nothing grandiose, it’s this little long poem about writing a poem published on our public elementary school paper (I’m trying to secure a copy). I didn’t really pursue the craft, and except for Wheel of Time, Robert Heinlein and my other favorite books, I never did like long reads and finish by skimming.
So here goes:
Sky’s a mystery –
Blue yellow orange red gray
Just like a mood ring.
