Ever write Haiku?
I used to write just about everyday in the contest at poetry.com. I've been trying to do that again to keep my mind active. The link for the site is:

I'll share:
trees in stil waters
growing steadily through time
reach toward the sky

I used to write Haiku's when I was in high school. Haven't done them in years. I submitted a poem to poetry.com a long time ago.

marysmasterpieces 03-12-2007 07:00 AM

I found my poem!!
I just went to poetry.com and found my poem. The title is What is Love? if you want to check it out!

Last year I tried to teach my third graders to write them That was a challenge! Most of them got it and some were very good. Others just weren't ready for it.

God so loved the world
Hope brings peace and calms my soul
Now my joy is full

Paperwork galore
But no one ever reads it
Why do I bother?
(sorry - I just finished with a committee meeting here at work and the follow-up paperwork is on my brain)

Stretching to the sky
Seeking sun and fresh spring air
Easter flowers bloom

Ink on my fingers
Stamp and punch and tie a bow
The joy of my craft

This thread made me laugh. A guy in High school had a crush on me and he used to write me Haiku that all ended with my name. Yes, he was a dork. :) But it was very flattering at that age where the other guys were still speaking in monosyllables.
Thanks for the trip down memory lane!

Its been a LONG time, middle school and high school .. we did haiku's diamonte's, and several others. I still have them though put away for my kids. I love writing...

I submitted a short poem to poetry.com.... it was accepted... just haven't done anything else with it since then.... will have to find the letters and the poem again... LoL
Been thinking about compiling them and then attempting to get my poems published... who knows.... a friend of mine got his book published... through an independant publishing company... maybe some day...
course I am thinking I need to write a book with tips for Disney world. I have so much knowledge about that place stuck in my head- even urban legends about different attractions being haunted...

Back to the op.... most of my poems don't rhyme any more, like free line poems now...and how I feel at the time.

Rush'd Lady 04-30-2007 09:17 PM

Cool! Haiku poetry. Will have to try again! :)

Rainsong 05-13-2007 07:32 PM

I've only ever written one.

Haiku. No can do.
Poetry gene omitted.
Feeling very dumb.


charming 06-04-2007 06:56 PM

love you, rainsong!

charming 06-04-2007 07:24 PM

stranger at the door
-you have a sign for S.U.! ...?
unexpected joy

doorbell ring sounds off
whatever could that be now?
u.p.s. man smiles

U.P.S. truck comes
acronym for all that's good
addiction appeased

little naturist
despis-ed clothes discarded
New backyard Eden

how can I punish?
I admire his defiance,

4 year old small man
exasperating Mama
mischevous talent

this is fun
I'll be back.
(I have too many words anyway)

charming 06-04-2007 07:32 PM

(ds wanted to help)

Callum and Mama
coop'd up together each day
you are still fun, mom

from his words
in the sun
you and me
callum said
you are still fun to play with

I love you the best!

kiss, snuggles ensue
ev'ning comes whats for snack?
bedtime rituals

navybrat75 06-05-2007 08:38 AM

those r great, TFS!

charming 06-05-2007 10:26 AM

I wrote 2 more last night on the message board in the kitchen...
I guess when you are sleep deprived the pattern just goes straight into the subconscious...
after 4 books with ds I'm often unable to stop speaking Seuss-ically, sometimes for a week!
I'll post them later... too uncoordinated to do stairs... must rest!

someone else try

Laurene 06-05-2007 10:46 AM

Great Site

I never thought about creating my own Haiku. I love stamps featuring this.
Thanks for the website! :cool:

charming 06-06-2007 09:18 AM

I'm liking this haiku-arama-jam...
anyone else care to try?

laureltree 06-07-2007 04:46 PM

Okay, I have a 7 - 5 - 7...

Spot compression mammogram
Boobs squished painfully
Time for a chocolate milkshake

This is a true story...er, haiku

charming 06-07-2007 05:28 PM

ohh, sweetie!

it always floors me that we keep 'em high round and proud using extaordinary harnesses and contraptions...mostly, let's be honest , for men
...and then the dr.s ..men... can only find one way to test them...squashing them!
seems fishy to me...
they don't have squashers for their ....part...!

If men had boobs, not only could we women relax,
among happy infantile men,
there would probably be no b.c. at all!

there would be a little pink diamond pill instead of annoying and unnecesary viagra!

I hope your test results were negative in the positive way...

sorry for the hi-jack!

blueyes 06-06-2009 12:48 PM

hmmm - ok, my students poems are on my desk at work, but let me see what i can do -

warm sunshine filters
though the newly sprouted leaves
spring leads to summer


stamps, ink, papers, bows -
all laid out upon my table
waiting for my return


charming 06-08-2009 05:29 PM

"the tree so lovely as a "
wha? this is so tuff...


drivers' side front wheel
passenger side, front and back
me, just plain tired out!
