A Strange(r) Haiku

Back in the day this blog had poetry.
Poetry that we wrote ourselves.
Poetry that was inspired by the classic works we read: cinquain, acrostic, haiku, limerick, and even sonnets.

Why did we stop?
I suspect novel content.  Not novel as in new, but novel as in book.  The content of our books took a turn to the dark side, and it has felt wrong to craft poetic works about murder, greed, and infidelity.

Bleak subject matter or not, I am taking back poetry.


Mersault’s Haiku

Shooting on the beach
Why? The sun was in my eyes.
Guillotine for me.

Mary’s Haiku

                                                                  a tiny poem
                                                                  for such a small character
                                                                  she’s hardly mentioned

                                                                  How can she compete,
                                                                  the sister in the middle?
                                                                  by moralizing

                                                                  The middle Bennet
                                                                  striving toward accomplishment
                                                                  prefers books to all
