Writer's Block: Sharing Haikus

The Japanese haiku poet Basho once wrote, "Old pond / a frog jumps / the sound of water." Try writing some of your own haikus about the little things in your life. A haiku generally consists of a five-syllable line, a seven-syllable line and a second five-syllable line. You can also use any combination of ten-to-fourteen syllables.


On our waterbed
Black nose in his smoky tail
My loving friend sleeps.

I couldn't resist this one. After all, Ari has Asian ancestors! He'd be offended if I hadn't written a haiku about him.

ROFLMAO -- Ari is my Siamese cat, actually a long hair colorpoint. Cats lay on the bed by right. A small house cat can occupy the entire bed by flattening himself out crosswise and then have to get picked up if you want to get in.

He'd be very offended if a dog got in his bed.

Thanks! My cat has been my inspiration for eight years now, and I hope he lives a long long time.
