Poem About Poetry - When Haiku Turns Into A Joke - Poem by john tiong chunghoo

haiku, after sometime
you think they are a joke
and wait for that new voice
that could shake the world
that rare soul or genius who
could give a fresh view from
the mundanest corner without
even too many syllables like -
Old Pond
A Frog Jumps In
The Sound of Water

    Joking a part
    close to my heart
    syllable counting
    is not what
    I'm doubting
    Intention is
    what it's about
