Well, I’m sort of tackling WordPress’s 365 posting…. A haiku a day. Bear with me as I attempt to learn the fine are of haikuing (yeah, I know that is probably not a word.)
Now, I’m a couple of days behinds, but I’ll make up for it by the end of the year. Or I’ll post a couple of haikus a day. Today you get two, so I will only be three behind. Please, please comment if you know something about haiku that I do not put into mine. I’m going off of guess work.
Oh, and all of this is coming from my Haikubes…..so please bear with me.
A Regret About My Romantic Life
My fantasy left
It went slowly through us
The touches are gone
A Vision For Our World
A gentle fortune
Shines after the last thunder
Leaves us melodic
Even I’m not terribly impressed. I guess right now it is more just getting the feeling out. I hope to be more eloquent as time goes by. I want to thank Jesse for his encouragement. I might not have attempted this had I not seen his blog.

These are pretty good. Traditionally, Haiku is about the minute or sweeping detail of nature. They’re clever bits of word craft and so far you’re doing a good job with sort of sliding us sideways into the end of poem. I think of haiku as like… going straight forward and then at the last line, taking a step to the side without ever turning. Does that make sense?
Oddly enough, it does make sense, unitl I read my verses again. Then I lose it. But some strange way, I get what you mean by stepping to the side. Thank you. And thank you for that bit of detail about nature. I always viewed haiku as being more intune with things in nature, so it seems odd to write about none outdoors-y things. However, I may figure out a way to include that. And thank you for your compliments as well.
These are both great! I wish you luck on your blogging journey. I’m no expert in the Haiku area either, but they’re fine in my book! You’ve made a follower of me! 🙂
Well thank you very much. I’m quite flattered. I hope you enjoy the continuations in my endeavor.
