HAIKU UNIVERSITY


UNIVERSITY HAIKU

Eyes on my wife


He confessed:
“God is great”


Twelve bachelors


Died in the hand
Of a spinster


Hands on the head
Feet on the floor:
Death of the duke


Sand in his rice
He forgot the happiness
Of yester-years


My love dies


At the death


Of your money


There is a fly


On the tie
Of your fly


Red light sisters


In red gowns:
I am a high sinner





The investors


And the debtors
Killed the creditors


The church of God


Put a veil
On my happiness


Asking: “who


Told you




I am dead? ”


Mangoes run


Oranges burn
The harvest is not come


You and I


Divided minds
Bonded together



POSTSCRIPT:
The Haiku is Japanese traditional invention of a complete poem in three lines of seventeen syllables convention but insisting on the seventeen syllables in other languages will deprive the haiku of the peculiarities, which other languages may infuse into it. The haiku summarizes the very essence of life in three lines, which, to the best of my knowledge, is what these poems of mine expresses.

Poem of the Day

poet Wilfred Owen

All sounds have been as music to my listening:
Pacific lamentations of slow bells,
The crunch of boots on blue snow rosy-glistening,
Shuffle of autumn leaves; and all farewells:
