I can’t taste homemade icing without thinking of my Aunt Beckie.

Gnawed Haiku

red cannas flowers,beetles,bugs,pest,

bold red cannas
blossoms bloom all week
despite the gnawing of beetles

Nice Senryu

everyone wants an
honest answer from us
as long as it’s nice


So this is not really haiku, and I almost erased it except that people on Twitter liked it so much. This may be senryu, but I think it’s a stretch. Read the definition for senryu on my What is Haiku? page and tell me what you think in the comments on this post.

Party Haiku

the bee navigates
through the many flowers
which party to attend

Remember to plant flowers that bees like to eat!

Day 24 NaHaiWriMo 2017

flower bud

the frost kills it

hope delayed

 
Today’s prompt was “in short” and we were supposed to write a minimal haiku. I can do sad well, so I did a short haiku about being sad. My hormones are messed up right now and the dreary days make me sad.

You can follow me on Instagram and Twitter and Facebook.

Nest Haiku

nests in the fall,squirrel's nest,

squirrel’s nest
the only leaves in the tree
holding the baby

 

Just in case I get too busy today to post a haiku, I will post a haiku that I wrote in February 2015. But do check back for new haiku poem tonight. I wrote this while going to see my best friend’s baby.

Haiku in the Sunlight

sunlight falls on
half of the flowers
the nominated grow taller

 

I wanted to share some extra haiku and get you guys excited for National Haiku Writing Month. Are you going to share what you write every day this year? Where will you share it?

sunlight on flowers, sunlight on snow,sunshine on frozen plants,

Strong Haiku

little vine

twisting around itself
the tender moonflower vine
held up by its own strength

National Haiku Writing Month is on its way! Will you participate this year?

Haiku in my flowerbed.

in my flowerbed

I want some bleeding hearts

but no one listens to me

 

I could have sworn I already posted this haiku, but apparently not. I might start sharing Louis L’Amour’s poetry in March. He didn’t write a lot, but what he did write was great. Who wants to read some L’Amour?  Leave me a comment below!

Sturdy Haiku

tall flowers,dark red hollyhock,flowers with big leaves,

sturdy stalk of the
hollyhock holds red blossoms
I straighten my spine

It’s going to be a long week. But I will get through it. Just like I have gotten through other hard weeks.
