April Fool's Trick Haiku - Poem by Lorraine Margueritte Gasrel Black

The Arachnid says

'Come into my parlor now

little fly.Dinner! '

At Midnight I looked

outside my window and yelled

'It's snowing! '.Nature laughed.

A Wizard appeared

in my dreams handing me a

Worm.Call home today!

April foolery

and hilarity is fun

the joke is on you

I tried to submit

the first haiku on today's

contest.No avail.

April Fool is lasting

much longer than one day as

Nature and we laugh

Laughter is the best

medicine of which nothing

Can escape its mood

Loki shapeshifting

moods from dark scowl to laughter

April's foolish pranks

    Nice poem constructed on the basis of the haiku. Alone from time to time I am writing so, all the more for me like. The haiku is teaching saving and he is eliminating the excess of unnecessary words. It is necessary to put into this minimal form as the most contents, to capture the meaning and the time, in which something is happening. It contrary to appearances isn't simple. For you oneself that's all is pretending. You prefer principle 5 - 7 - 5 what in the haiku the primary importance has and is a great impediment. Very much I like him. (10 v.) . I am greeting and I thank you :) Maria Barbara Korynt (Report) Reply

    I love the way your pen plays with fragile notions here, Lorraine, dancing within the familiar Haiku form without surrendering to naked syllables. Your message strikes a chord with my sensibilities! Warm regards, John. Thanks for your generous comments, Lorraine! :) (Report) Reply

    Perfect April fool's trick haiku, unique in its own type. April 01 is my birthday. Its been now 55 years that I am being fooled consistently.
