Early last year I participated in a Haiku Slam on Facebook. This virtual event took place on a Friday night; and for 5 hours participants were asked to write and post poems on a designated wall. Also, all personal wall posts and status updates were required to take the form of a haiku poem. The fact that I participated in this event, tells you a little about me. The fact that I thought this was big fun, on a Friday night, tells you a lot about me; maybe too much.
Recently, while deleting the clutter from my computer, I came across the file containing some laughable and rather horrific haiku. I’m not too proud to admit; I need to pad my blog posts with some content. I am repurposing my haiku posts. I will
torture you share with you from time to time one of these little goose eggs gems.
None of the haiku’s have titles so I would welcome suggestions (no profanity please). I’m posting this first one because of all the poor weather we have been experiencing in the New York City area.
The moist heat of spring
banishes dour winter
calls jolly flowers
