bad haiku corner
syllables over substance
Just as a minivan can make a natural vista more ordinary, Americans have spent many hours making the haiku an egalitarian effort. ANYONE can write one, including third graders (be honest, how many of you wrote about your pets?) and there is no Board of Haiku Preservation to put a stop to it. Given that, I think we should have some fun. Not an incredibly original idea, I know, but I have been known to send professional e-mails entirely in haiku, or biblical verse, or Pig Latin. I’m in withdrawal. So…. I will occasionally post a picture with a starter verse. Any poetry is welcome. If iambic pentameter is your thing, fly that freaky flag in the comments.
Yes. I know that last line only has four syllables. Now you get it.
