Haiku

Haikus have lines of  5 syllables, 7 syllables, and then 5 syllables).  There are a number of benefits from writing them regularly.

Here are some examples I have composed:

I’ve been to the mountaintop.

Not so. A summit.

Still, vast is the view.

 


 

A backyard playground.

Laughing dogs, barking kids.

Now…still. Broken home.


 

Danger awaits me

So they say, in every way

But I am here now.


 

A doughty Amash

Self-manumitted

From “freedom” caucus shackles. 


 

Imperturbable

Zen Master, Catholic Saint.

Unfathomable.
