My Attempt at Some Haiku Deals!


Five heads, grin from pikes

Seven decades is so long

The food in jail sucks!



Sunlight shines on me

Summer is hazy, lazy

Breeze touches my face



The writing scribe scribes

Subjects so hard to come by

Excellence, who knows?



If writing falls down

In an on-line cyber-place

Does anyone hear?



Stuck in the same place

Cannot move, or get away

Days repeat again



Ebb and flow of days

From this window flying by

Just a fun house ride



Trying out, all new

Who is to say yeah or nay?

Just sounds good to me



My life-line, sad keys

Tell a tale that never ends

Broken record plays



Got writer’s block, bad

Mind is just blank; what the hell?

There must be something



Broken man gets by

By writing down all his thoughts

Some are just crazy



Sawed-off thoughts run

My head is bursting with stuff

Some good, most bad; s**t!



Five, seven, five, done

This haiku deal; it frustrates

Overflow of words

Emotive, touching, funny, sad, human. EXCELLENT!

You really got hold of these Haiku's and breathed life into the words. Seams you have risen to the 5 7 5 challenge

Oh mike, these are so well conceived and written. They pack a punch in their very brevity. Sunshine and lazy hazy - lovely. Cyber space and lost writing, love it; fun house ride and ground hog days - oh Mike...
and now this format? it's perfect for your writing and your thoughts. Bitter bullets or bright blinks...
I applaud, and yell 'encore'!
Best very best regards. So glad you told me to come back and check it out. Connie

Thanks Connie; I was hoping I didn't make a fool out of myself by using the wrong format!
