Cheryl’s Everyday Haiku 2013 (Week 05)

January 29 – February 4

Haiku #29

Fighting my android
Trying to get on Facebook
To post my haiku.

by Cheryl Crockett

Haiku #30

Crumpled feathers float
From sky battle theatre.
These birds are angry!

by Cheryl Crockett

Haiku #31

Harmless snake plant leaves
Rise out of a plastic pot;
Slither up my wall.

by Cheryl Crockett

Haiku #32 (Feb. 1)

Wonderful warm-up
Now the real work can begin
Haiku writing month.

by Cheryl Crockett

Haiku #32 (BONUS) #NaHaiWriMo Day 1

summer solstice
apple of gratitude
in a teacher’s humble hands.

by Cheryl Crockett

Haiku #32 (Extra) #NaHaiWriMo Day 1 Prompt: “Pasta”

Consider calamari
Imagine ink-
stained tongue.

by Cheryl Crockett

Haiku #33 (Feb. 2) #NaHaiWriMo Day 2 Prompt: “Eggs”

When eggs separate
Nothing holds together
No yolk!

by Cheryl Crockett

Haiku #33 (Feb. 2)

The groundhog’s pardoned.
He did not see his shadow;
Therefore stays alive.

by Cheryl Crockett

Haiku #34 (Feb. 3) #1aday2013

I stand to my feet
And watch Sandy Hook kids sing
With tears in my eyes.

Haiku #34 (Feb. 3) #NaHaiWriMo Day 3 Prompt: “Cheese”

I came teachable
You with knowledge
Now my cheese is missing.

by Cheryl Crockett

Haiku #35 (Feb. 4)

Count your syllables.
Five-seven-five is a “thing”.
You cannot stop it.

  1. It is *hard* to let go of 5-7-5! I like these poems.

    • poetatete Says:

      Thank you! Why would anyone want to let go of 5-7-5? It is a bona fide form of poetry that haiku purists view as “inaccurate” and/or “inferior”. I am so inspired to write a militant spoken word piece about this conspiracy! 🙂
