010: Haiku Collection

This February I created a Haiku collection when I took part in National Haiku Writing Month. Each day, #NaHaiWriMo posted a daily prompt on their Facebook page. So, I shall utilize these prompts as hashtag titles for each haiku. While I did not complete the entire month, I am looking forward to doing this again next year.

This Haiku collection does not follow the 5/7/5 syllable per line rule allowing for much variation. To me, the Haiku is a clever space for a Caprice to occur, so it is not a surprise that I enjoy the form. That being said, I hope that you enjoy my winter adventure with Haiku’s prompted by NaHaiWriMo.

Abandoned Skyline

Fence of twigs,
An open square.
Say you'll never leave. 

Swells swarm the shoreline,
overwhelming the earthwork--
We run from the flood. 


White Supremacists,
Renounce your fake privilege


Capitalist Club:
Ravaged Earth, abused humans,
entry fees limitless. 


Adrift interior:
Buoyant, undulant, yet still. 
Vertigo waxes back. 


Red planet: Vacancy.
Parched taverns, hollow hotels. 
Watermelon Sugar. 


Tiny bookshelf,
Yesterday our pages were empty.
Today is full of love.

Tickets and entanglements:
Corporeal gates,
Skeleton keyless entry.


For a little while,
we missed the stench of humans,
but the Earth could breathe. 


Vegetables Waiting, 
envious lettuce. A lawn of trees. 
Rainbow falls in-between. 

Thanks for checking out my collection of Haiku. I would love to hear any of your thoughts, so please share your comments.

I will be sharing more poetry and prose soon. I hope you’ve enjoyed this Capricious Pause. See you next time.

Spread the love
