The “These Are NOT Haiku!” Challenge: Revolutionary IMprov Haiku And Limericks

October 22, 2014

The following banter between a friend and I is the result of a long-standing peeve of hers that my haiku … aren’t.

DS: First off, happy birthday! Hope it was a good one. Second: THOSE AREN’T HAIKU!

DK: (Moi)
I write these Haiku,/
girlfriend, just for you./
A tisket, a tasket,/
You’ll blow a gasket/
at the poetry I do.
(a limerick).

DS: ok…I like that one, but c’mon…you’re talented! You can do REAL HAIKU. I challenge you.

DK: My birthday called dawn./
Light swept, bright, down mountain slopes./
My life’s before me.


DK: She’ll oft criticize./
I’ve seen ducks’ moist backs before./
She still makes me laugh.

DK: She smiles, radiant./
A bright bouquet reflects her./
Miracles happen.

DK: (do you want me to stop?)

DS: Yes you can stop now. But please keep writing them correctly!

DK: If I stop the flow/
of protoplasmic verse, I fear/
my nucleus’ burst.

You can’t just put a /
Where you want the line to end.
Thought must be complete.

I understand that./
My words freeflow like rivers./
They tickle my mind.

Not Hard Swiss Chard: Revolutionary ImproVerse Rhyming Haiku

October 21, 2014

Swiss Chard bouquet -- from my garden to my mouth in 5 minutes
It was not hard to/
grow Swiss chard, so why did I/
delay the harvest?


Unknown Culinary Delight
Who knew, as the chard/
grew, what boiling, olive oil,/
lime and herbs would do?


I Could Yodel, It’s Sooooo GOOD!
Italian herbs and/
seasonings meet Swiss chard for/
a Alpine taste treat!

She’d Never Had Before
At 84, she’d/
never had Swiss chard before./
But now, she wants more.
