Haiku Happiness

Our last meeting was a celebration of the humble haiku. This 17 syllable poem has a simple form, just 5-7-5, and is perfect for creating striking visual snapshots in just a few words. Here are some we shared...enjoy!



Through dry grass fox slinks

Rusty shadow seeks her cubs

Before the hunt comes


Forced or unforced joy

Thrusting purple/red – then baked

Such a sweet sour tart


Sunset on our lawn

Pigeons strut by fearlessly

Feathers on the morn


Such ugly creatures

Pedipalps and spinnerets

Such beautiful words


Toes flail in cold deeps

Footing lost on shifting sands

Undertow’s strong pull


Ten armed anglers

Crawling from their shy dark holes

Giant crabs out fishing
