Haiku Happiness

Okay, I am feeling happier by the minute because I am almost done grading final exams! To reward myself for my hard work, I decided to borrow an idea from Dharma Bums, who are some of the bestest peeps on earth, peeps whom I would hang out with on a regular basis if they only lived 3,000 miles closer to me (or I, to them).

In this blog entry, Rexroth's Daughter reminded me of how much I love Haiku, and I think that all of you should love them, too. So in an effort to spread Haiku happiness, I am going to ask you all to respond to this blog entry with a Haiku. To get the ball rolling and to show you that I am not afraid to look silly in public, I'll share this (not very good, but fun to write) Haiku that I quickly scribbled in their comments section;

fierce living jewel
hummingbird hovering over
my open hand

Monkeys are funny.
People are not so funny.
Neither is this poem.

In honor of the end of your schoolyear:

Rustle of paper
Latte grows cold in the cup
A deadline to meet

we are birds of a feather
near or far one flock

at the end of day
crows fly to the willow tree
shadow on skylight

May in New England
raining and blowing like March
Birds nest anyway.

dead owl in freezer
waiting on lazy bums
trip to museum

Ok, I'm game.

Your ending of tasks
Hastens beginnings of new
Fresh wind smells green mint

well, i'm looking at the plate of food in front of me:

grilled cheese sandwiches
with semisolid cheddar
melt for my belly.

ok, that was not good.

Solitary Egret

into brightness and shadow
sift sky's blue gap

breaking in a white ripple
height's slow progress

beyond tree’s blockade
shaking in the sun

white orb hiding still
on dreary new hamsphire nights
cloudy wet no moon

(the second haiku I ever wrote)
