Haiku Friday #3

I’ve decided to write at least 30 haiku for National Poetry Month 2015.

I’ve been writing them if not daily, but in groups of three or more.  If you missed my first three haiku from this month, feel free to check them out.

For those of you who are wondering about haiku — beyond the 5-7-5 syllable count — please visit Parrish Lantern‘s post on the form.

Here’s Haiku Friday #1 and Haiku Friday #2.

If you’ve written or read any great poems this month, please feel free to share them in the comments.

Here are some of my most recent haiku pieces:

Long wait burns my legs
paused still, my video life
a curb of carbon.

Pushed aside, now.
Doors begin to close, sandwich —
I am the cheese.

Hyper-linked pic
shared widely out in space
echo, social media

Siren call, watch out
louder, softer, run away
toddle forward, fall

Cragged tripod feet
grown long, thick, gnarled
clutching tar and wire

    These are fun, especially “I am the cheese.” 🙂

  2. I enjoyed your haiku pieces, Serena! (I’ve written some in the past.) I will take a look at Parrish Lantern’s take on haiku as well.
