A Hodgepodge of Haiku

While looking for examples of Haiku to use in our requests to our readers for Haiku of their own, we came across a number of…”interesting”…examples. Some serious.  Some not so much. We present them for your enjoyment here with no particular (ahem!) rhyme or reason.

“Over the Wintry”
Over the wintry
Forest, winds howl in rage
With no leaves to blow.
–Natsume Sōseki

Florida Thunderstorm
Eternal, heavy
The god of glory thunders
During heavy rains

The following Haiku are all from anonymous sources.

Haikus are easy.
But sometimes they don’t make sense.

Haikus confuse me.
Too often they make no sense.
Hand me the pliers.

Haiku for Bacon
That’s too much bacon.
Please just bring me some kale chips.
Said no one ever.

Birthday Haiku
For your birthday, friend,
I wrote this haiku for you.
Worst present ever.

It’s more fun driving
since I changed my car horn to
the sound of gunshots.

And lastly, a link back to an article by Cindy Knox we published years ago that further illustrates the effective use of Haiku.
