Valentine’s Haiku

In Haiku, Poetry, Writing on 14/02/2012 at 17:26

I was challenged to write a haiku for Valentine’s Day. I wrote three, which is a bit of a failure. If were a really good haiku poet I’d be able to put my mixed feelings into one.

1. Valentine’s Day
bane of all singles
do not be bitter, instead
get drunk, watch batman

2. Old Valentine’s Card
lost somewhere in dust,
all that’s still true is that your
handwriting is nice

3.
when I’m around you
the butterflies in my stomach
become elephants

I’m a big fan of Japanese haiku. Here are a handful I’ve written. If you don’t read my haiku, go read some by Kobayashi Issa. He’s great.

Seaside
Water sparkles
crystal in sunshine,
but wait an hour-
stupid sandwich

Blonde On Blonde
thin wild mercury
swaggers, swoons, lusts, loses, loves,
suffers New York blues

Simple Man
I am a simple man.
I like your smile, your eyes and
the things you say.

Haiku haiku
Still trying to write
haiku that isn’t too weird
grasshopper starlight
