Some of you can't count

Rude though pointing that out is

I cannot help that.

What is that icon?

It looks like a cotton ball

Founder's a weevil?

:)

I like this better.

A smiley is more my style.

Pardon my format.

:)

I did it again.

I liked the first one so much

It bore repeating.

:)

Haiku is like crack.

It's heinously addictive.

You know you want more.

:)

Oh my God help me.

It seems I cannot stop this.

I must go to bed.

:)

And yet I still type.

What the hell is wrong with me?

I can't shut it off.

It is Founder's fault.

He knew that this would happen.

Look at him giggle.

I want to slap him.

But hands are busy typing.

Except this finger.

I resist haikus in the same way I resist puzzles; a banana is easier to eat than an apple. ;-) Here is a blog contribution quoted from Jane Hirshfield's book Nine Gates: "The act of writing is a making, but also a following: of the mystery of source as it emerges into a form; of the wisdom of the heart-mind as it encounters the wisdom of language."

Hirshfield goes on to quote Yang Wan-li a Sung dynasy poet:

Now what is poetry? If you say it is simply a matter of words, I will say a good poet gets rid of words. If you say it is simply a matter of meaning, I will say a good poet gets rid of meaning. "But," you ask, "without words and without meaning, where is the poetry?" To this I reply, "get rid of words and get rid of meaning, and still there is poetry."

ur so right Susan...but Haiku is fun

Holy Tanka nan

I'm trying to understand

It's complicated

Once I can master this form

I'll then post something worthy

From Mac: tanka 1 |ˈtä ng kə| noun ( pl. same or -kas ) a Japanese poem consisting of five lines, the first and third of which have five syllables and the other seven, making 31 syllables in all and giving a complete picture of an event or mood. ORIGIN Japanese, from tan ‘short’ + ka ‘song.’

Perhaps, Tanka - A - Day could be yet another Blog...

The Decimal Day

Oct. 10, 2010

1 + 0 + 1 + 0 + 1 + 0 = 3

The digits in 10/10/10 add up to a trinity.

2 + 0 + 3 = 5

The digits in 2010/10/10 add up to 5.

3 + 5 = 8

3, 5, and 8 are consecutive numbers in the Fibonacci sequence (1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, ...) and the above equation is the effective computation of the sixth element of the sequence by addition of the fourth and fifth.

Gee antigeekess

When it comes to Work I guess

Ask 'till they say Yes

Here's advice for you

Decide what you want to do

Now apply there too

What job's not a bore

Just what are you looking for

Think about it more

If you need money

It may sound kinda funny

Do something Sunny

Ask all that you know

To suggest where you should go

If it's weird say No

You are not alone

So spend more time on the phone

What skills should you hone

Here is a good rule

Consider going to school

Smart is a good tool

What about scary

Like in the Military

Is that too hairy

Life is a tizzy

Now it's time to get busy

You are not dizzy

bathing her roundness in Rain

until she is calmed.


The Earth smiles upwards

reaching to the Sky with trees,

attempting embrace.

EXPLORING THE ONE-BREATH POEM: DISCOVERING YOUR HAIKU-MIND led by Billie Dee

Sunday, March 11, 1:00 – 2:30 p.m.

Open Door Books 4761 Cass Street, San Diego 92109 (corner of Cass & Missouri) ~ 858-270-8642

http://haikusandiego.com

 This will be an overview for those new to or curious about the haiku genre, as well as more experienced writers who would like to expand their perspectives and workshop poems-in-progress. We will concentrate on the elements of contemporary English Language Haiku, a form poorly understood by most people who were introduced to haiku in school. The introduction will be followed by a 45-minute interactive comment and critique session of participant poems. Please bring recent work if you wish to participate in this part of the workshop. The overall goal of this session is to cultivate the haiku-mind, one that seeks and captures those epiphanic moments of awareness that arise from our everyday lives.

Like a good Haiku

A short Tweet from me to you

Shares my ideas too

July 28, 2012

Helping a Friend see

The visions inside of me

Can set my thoughts free

July 28, 2012

Each day what to do

Haiku or not to Haiku

That is the question

July 28, 2012

Haiku's such a blast

Most recent are posted last

Thoughts set in a cast

July 28, 2012

'Bout Haiku I'm asked

My oldest are from the past

Written pretty fast

Japanese People

Do Not Bow to Nuclear

It's Not Your Master

July 28, 2012

Think 5-7-5

The rest is mental magic

At least I think so

July 30, 2012

Post it if you dare

But don't tell them where

All your thoughts come from

Know a Sweet Retweet

Is one that cannot be beat

By the one Tweeting

July 31, 2012

Rich Leaders failed US

Voting to tax the new poor

Bye Bye Middle Class

Aug. 2, 2012

Tweet or not to tweet

That is the question I meet

My mind skips a beat

Fear of the Future

Our Leaders proven useless

Now Greed takes over

Aug. 5, 2012

We all are now caught

Wondering what we can do

To still survive

Aug. 5, 2012

In stormy weather

We have to pull together

Now more than ever!

Aug. 17, 2012

Remaining Silent

Not standing up for what's Right

Only makes things worse

=====

NO more Excuses

We all need to stand up now

Freedom is at stake

Aug. 19, 2012

What do you now do

When those in need ask for help

Give or turn away

Aug. 20, 2012

The heat of the day

Now follows the Sun away

Until the last Ray

=====

A breeze from the Bay

Makes everyone feel OK

Cool air for no pay

Aug. 21, 2012

Searching for the right

Wondering long into Night

Looking for insight!

Aug. 23, 2012

To approach the edge

One comes face to face with Self

Un-learning nothing

Sept. 9, 2012

Surrounded by lies

Makes all honest folks seem wise

While the BS flies

Sept. 10, 2012

Take many small steps

To eliminate stumbles

As we move forward

Japan's New Question

Allow Nuclear Restarts

Or Save People's Health

A Private Haiku

To say Thanks for all you do

Written just for you

Sept. 30, 2012

At San Onofre

More you know, the less you'll GLOW!

N☢ RISKY Restarts

For storing nuke waste

Yucca Mountain's not the place

It's far T☢☢ faulty

What's holding us back

Is it something we all lack

Like a special knack

Hiding in the pack

Except when we're in the sack

Thinking changing tack

So try something new

Just show the World the real you

It's not hard to do

To set oneself Free

Just being, for all to see

Hello World, it's Me

Liftport is the WAY

To transition into Space

Without pollution

Oct. 16, 2012

An elevator to space is the way to go? A platform 1.5 km in the air, sending robots up and down from the platform on tethers is a far cry from the Kármán line. Oh, and by the way, the space elevator as proposed is for moving cargo into space, not people. The cargo would be for cargo transport to the people who are already up there and got there by, you know, rockets.

Mr Tom Johnson

Haiku is easy to do

Just control your words

Dec. 2, 2012

I just write Haiku

Seems that is all I can do

Hope that's good enough
