Six Haiku


Haiku poetry
Such a paucity of words
Five, seven, and five.

Haiku poetry
Doesn’t always make much sense
To a sane person.

A little Haiku
Is so short on words that it’s
Inconsequential.

A dingleberry
A small thing that clings to a
Place very hairy.

LAO-TZU said it – It
Is the vacancy that makes
The vessel useful.

Six Haiku is all
I write today, so it’s back
To sensible rhymes.
