Several months ago https://crookedcreek.live/2019/11/14/haiku/ we discussed Haiku and I asked readers to submit their original poems. A new reader, Jan Beekman, has done just that and here is her Haiku and her lovely photograph to go with it. The yellow blooms inspired her poetry. Lilies drop petals Long before other flowers Best not to cut […]

Thank you to the readers who took the Haiku challenge! You did a superb job writing your Haiku and it was fun. Imagine if your dog could talk to you. Or even better what if he/she could write Haiku like you? One reader pointed out the book below written by Jamie Coleman. I took a […]
Sylvia Mattingly is my niece and friend. You know her from reading many of her poems on this blog. Syl jumped in with her Haiku which tells exactly who she is, a nature lover. Sylvia’s Haiku Lover of nature I venture through the woodlands And leave my heart there.
Thank you readers! The responses continue to the Haiku Challenge https://crookedcreek.live/2019/11/14/haiku/ The latest is about my Grand-dog, Hawkeye. Hawkeye’s name is bigger than he as you can see here. The Haiku is by my daughter. Dianne’s Haiku Tiny puppy dreams Little feet run, he squeaks, snores His dream squirrel is tiny too.

I love them, Bill! Bill’s Three Haiku Star hanging as fruit beneath the scimitar moon. The tree boughs in praise! Tried to write Haiku But decided […]
The responses to the Haiku Challenge https://crookedcreek.live/2019/11/14/haiku/ were many and I am so proud of each reader who has participated. You’ve done an impressive job and there’s some good poetry here. Instead of printing all the poems together I think they will be more appreciated if they are posted a few at a time. I’m […]
Okay, I did it. At least I think that I did. Below is my final poem, but first I’ll share some of my initial attempts. 1. My love of nature has grown slowly year by year. Now it is so dear. 2. Haiku is silly. No fun in this […]
Haiku Do you know what a Haiku is? Do you know what Haiku are? Both questions are grammatically correct according to the dictionary. I checked with Grammarly which does not agree.
