What is a haiku?

A haiku is a Japanese poem with a total of seventeen syllables, broken into three lines (traditionally of five, then seven, then five syllables). Haiku in English don’t always follow the strict syllable count, and they can be endlessly creative, so have fun with it! Read more about haiku on Wikipedia.

    Chores, work, things-to-do
    Momma didn’t raise no fool
    Find me at the pool

    A day in the sun,
    Without keeping track of time.
    Now: peeling shoulders.

    Best time of the year
    Is summertime to be clear
    Come enjoy a beer

    A Northwestern Bee
    tastes nectar of a flower,
    a hawk soars above.

    Hot mist hangs in air
    but at dusk it dissipates,
    The night’s dance begins

    Every day lounging
    At the beach or in the shade
    Ain’t summertime grand

    There’s the pitch, strike three
    The home crowd cheers, a shut out
    The boys of summer

    I need to write and
    want to fill my life on page
    and blank speaks loudly.

    Blank pages stare back,
    small worlds to place and explore,
    book full, time is up.

    Hot and sticky mess
    With dreams of water time bliss
    Stuck in work meeting

    Crisp and cool AC
    Meets sweltering heat outdoors
    It’s a losing war

    Homegrown tomatoes
    Tall green stalks, red ripen fruit
    Summer in a bite

    As Summer sizzles
    We play in the cool water
    Oh for days of yore
