the frost kills it
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.

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.
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?
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?
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 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.
but not too close to the sun
my wings are fake too
Today’s poem is about doubting yourself and feeling like even though things are going really well, it may all crash down at any moment. Are you writing for the prompts on Facebook?
Even if haiku isn’t your favorite type of poetry, please consider sharing your friends’ work this month. It is getting harder and harder to share on social media as all of the sites like Facebook now hide your posts in hopes that you will pay to make them appear. So please subscribe to and follow me and any other poets that you like and check the hashtag #NaHaiWriMo on Twitter.
If you are unsure of the rules/definition/form of haiku then please go to my What is Haiku? page. Also, make sure to check out the Facebook page where most of us poets meet to get a prompt and share our work. Today’s prompt is “zeppelin”.
click of the switch
glorious smells fill the house
my nose deserves nice things too
Do you do small things to pamper yourself?
