Haiku Wednesday Part I

Haikus are pretty interesting forms of word art. A refresher of the rules: Haiku is one of the most important form of traditinal Japanese poetry. Haiku is a 17-syllable verse form consisting of three metrical units of 5, 7, and 5 syllables. They can be created around anything…and to prove my point I have written the following haikus around a few random images for your viewing pleasure on this beautiful Wednesday.

I'd rather stab my eyes out.

Oh redneckery
Left turns for eight hours
Someone kill me now
—————–

A scene from the last act of Stephen King’s Cat’s Eye movie.

Mob husband gets mad
Table turner skyscraper
Ledge walks to the end
—————–

 

Johann Heinrich Füssli's 1802 oil painting "Nachtmahr"

 Monkey nightmare fuel
That jerk horse stands idly by
Please get off my chest
—————–

 

I can’t even look at this photograph for very long.

Teeth to eat my soul
Stop looking at me right now
Nuke it from orbit
—————–

I encourage you to join in on the fun. Please comment your own haiku on this post along with a link to the related image if applicable.

    Bring along your focused steed
    Down to the Derby.

    Love this; please make it a weekly feature…

  2. Your the third to tell me this, Zoe. Consider it done! Great haiku, too!. I especially love the word “focused” to describe the horse. That descriptor cracked me up.

  3. Sorry that should be “you’re”. My caffeine sources were depleted.
