Several Haiku On A Nautical Theme: Revolutionary ImproVerse Haiku(s)

February 27, 2013

As I wrote one haiku, several others followed, with deeper realization behind each.

What’s The Point?: Revolutionary ImproVerse Haiku Lament, 5:20 a.m.
If you wait for calm/
seas before you sail, you’ll n’er/
go anywhere fun.
Or
If you wait for calm/
seas before you sail, you will/
always stay on shore.

Or
If you wait for calm/
seas before you sail, you’ll stay/
moored, bored or becalmed.
OR
Waiting for calm seas/
before you sail? Why even/
risk the adventure?
==============

Why Wait To Sail? Revolutionary ImproVerse Haiku 5:27 a.m.
If you leave harbor/
with no rudder or mast, your/
trip will be cut short.
Or
If you leave harbor/
with no rudder and no mast,/
disaster awaits!

I Need A Crew: Revolutionary ImproVerse Haiku 5:46 a.m.
Life’s sail is better/
when you have a first mate and/
not just passengers.
