I occasionally try my hand at writing haiku. I'm not claiming that any of it is really all that good. And some haiku purists might even claim that I don't always follow the rules of haiku correctly. Indeed some of my attempts could be more correctly classified as senryu, rather than haiku.
Be all that as it may, I shall add my individual attempts over the next while. Some have been written many years ago. Others will be more recent.
As the occasional offering may be somewhat dark in nature, I shall give the collection a rating of Mature. I will give individual chapter warnings where necessary
April is National Poetry Writing Month, and this is my collection for 2021. The goal is to write 30 poems (one per day) throughout the month. The majority of poems are responses to prompts supplied by Jan Hutchinson. Since I turn fifty this year, a lot of them will feature remembrances, musings, and thoughts about the next fifty. A retrospective of my life.
Looking for laughs in all the wrong places...? Welcome to my world! A collection of poems, senryu, haiku, limericks and other odd mischief. Mostly done in hopes of a smile or giggle, but with a propensity to beguile and sometimes downright offend.
There are so many great authors/writers on GA, I can't possibly compete. Thus, think of me as your guilty little pleasure whilst sat upon your throne...praying for a solid turd and a clean sweep just before you flush!
Come on in to sit and have a read. We'll laugh until we cry or cry until we laugh...either way, we'll heal the world one tear at a time.
April is National Poetry Writing Month (NaPoWriMo), and the challenge is to write 30 poems (one per day) throughout the month. This year, I decided to do something a little different. Each day (or every other day, depending on my mood) I will write a 'postcard'--a short poem about my daily dealings with the COVID-19 pandemic. I will also write other poems as the mood (and daily prompts) strike me. I think it will be an interesting exercise to see how the poems change across the course of the month.
