Per Verse Lightning Haiku

The current Haiku Monday Competition is being hosted by the previous winner, Where Whispers Linger.  My three are striking examples of my horrible habit of doing frivolous ones in rhyme.


Crash, flash, together:
Still alright, but awful fright –
Bright  summer weather!

 A bolt from the blue?
Flying true, and frying you –
This fall is blue, too! 

Lightning, it strikes one,
With a spring a shock may bring –
Your season is done!

  2. I always enjoyed creating haikus. So many possibilities and they all seem effective in their brevity.

    No troubles with rhymes hereabouts, or… thereabouts? In digital, presence is ephemeral? Oh, back to the point. I have always thought to do rhymes but… this guys can’t… rant and rhyme at the same time? Dunno. Just… I don’t have it going on. So it’s always something to see.

    And that visual? That’s like… it. I keep thinking to avoid looking. Someone was rather talented, lucky, and maybe dead to get that shot. Or mocks it up well. Dunno that either. I don’t know much, but I do thank you for stopping in and offering your services. /hat tip


  6. too funny 🙂 nothing worse than a haiku purist I say


  7. ah it’s good to read and chuckle!


  8. groaning but laughing at your take on the sacred haiku.

    haiku bard’s plucky
    twice roll the dice, verse strikes thrice
    third time’s unlucky

    No, I don’t know what it means either…

    I see the light at the end of the tunnel!
