Collecting Haiku

I have started collecting words.  More specifically haiku.  I am aiming to write a haiku a day.  It’ll be interesting to see how this turns out but I’m hoping it’s a vaguely achievable goal.  I was going to start it as a new years resolution but new year is an arbitrary thing so I’m starting now.  Or rather I started on Friday.

***

Distill. Condense. Let

The image tell a story

In a breath. Haiku.

 ***

Coastal Erosion

Wearing away at

Foundations until nothing

Remains to support

 ***

Sketches on skin mark

Your boundary.  Outline your

Existence. Tattoo.

 ***

Post it note poems

Collected on scraps. Then lost.

Unexpected breeze.

 ***

Midwinter. Nights get

Shorter, days longer. Refresh

Possibilities.

 ***

Birds sing their morning

Song to a street lamp sun.  Dawn

Is hours away.

*** 

Map reading when the

Destination keeps changing.

Human condition.
