Poetry Wednesday

Red, gently applied over yellow
with a dry brush.
Cold apple.

This is one of my own poems, written in October of 2009.

Thanks! Apples are a great way to snack.

It's been said that haiku is an form to get the basics of, but extremely difficult to master. It certainly calls for poignancy with extreme brevity--and brevity is not my strong point! :-)

But very nice job here!

Thanks for posting!

Thanks, Evan! The briefer the better for me!

I meant to say that "It's been said that haiku is an EASY form to get the hang of..."

I remember doing haikus in elementary school--teachers seem to love having their students do them. Maybe they would help me learn to say things in fewer words.

My haiku almost never follow the 5-7-5 format. That would be a good discipline for me to cultivate, I think!

Dymphna's favorite quotes

"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
