Prompt #8: It’s Post Your Poems Day!

June 30, 2010

Photo by aurelio.asiain @

Last Thursday Lawrence challenged us to write meaning in very few words, using the form of an English Haiku. Did you succeed with this new form? Did you come to any revelations about language, poetry, or life itself?

As we share this week, you are welcome to include as many or as few haiku as you’d like to share. Just put them all on the same post on your blog, then leave a comment here linking us to that post. And remember, we are a gathering of poets sharing in the spirit of community. If you comment on other’s work, please do so in that spirit and not in the context of a critique.

Go forth and share poetry!

    I did two … though I treated them like stanzas in a single poem:
    Clouds without a clock

    I tend towards shorter poems, so the 6-8-6 was a stretch for me!

    and a little ps: I’m behind on the visiting from last time — my mother had an accident. she’s home now (YAY!) so I hope to catch up with everyone’s poems this week.
