Haiku for Beginners

Dr <DD> got me going on this…….he is a bit of a dab hand, as you can read. I am, on the other hand, very much a beginner…..I am not even sure that I see the point, although I am trying hard. I would like it to be on the way to writing some (real?) poetry. Let’s see how I get on and you too, if you want to have a go. All welcome!

Eight Syllables a Line…….


Here’s my first (political to boot) Boiku Haiku…..

Johnson Out! (3)

Scratches my walk. (4)

You are there. (3)

The icy wind of silence (7)

Cuts the air, (3)

Like a Knife, (3)

To the bone. (3)

On a par then? (4)

We must be told. (4)

Veuillez distinguer, chere Madame, mes salutations distinguees.(16)
