I do like these, they allow me to explore the good, the bad and the downright ugly when it comes to my ability to write minuscule Japanese style poems.
Lets start with the 3/5/3 Haiku and do something quite obvious.
Oh Sweet blossom
a springtime bouquet
Normally I like to defile the haiku and try and make them humorous because they can be such frightfully serious things.
Sweet scent alluring
filling me with a hunger
she smells like sausage
We all like sausage right? Apart from vegetarians obviously. And quite a lot of religious types. Okay, I like sausage.
She smiles sickly sweet
Best friend, her scent alluring
then texts your husband
We all know the type right.
Okay maybe a Tanka. Thats the old Haiku with two more lines added on of 7 syllables each because, let’s be honest, 17 syllables is just not enough sometimes.
Bright summer bee buzz
sweet floral scent delicious
white clouds in blue skies
plaid picnic blankets outstretched
warm sunshine on soft pink skin
It’s something I guess. Happy Thursday!
