Haiku

Thanks to Roger over at Searching for Blue Sea Glass for reminding me how cool haikus are. Go and write one now!

More about Haikus here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haiku

Here's mine:

My warm mug of tea
Perches still atop my desk
Soothing the morning

  • I've come up with a smart-arse haiku- strangely, I was checking out that haiku page only the other day, cos people were doing essays on them at soas. here's mine...

    Damn that fucking wind
    It's blown me right off my feet.
    Not metrical feet.

    boom boom

  • Are you certain this is a haiku and not a senryu?

  • Do-do-be doo
    (geddit, it follows on...)

    yes, I guess it is a senryu, though it's meant to be kind of end-of-winter-y...
