Untitled

As I write haiku,
you read Plath and try to edge
me toward the oven.

Ha! Good one!

Gemma Wiseman said...

Chuckling here! Haiku versus the kitchen! Creative!

Heaven said...

Great to see you tackling shorter forms like haiku.

As a suggestion, to keep it within the 17 syllables, I drop conjuctions like the, a or an or and; don't even bother making a straight sentence.

Go for it MZ~

You can always sift through my Haiku Koo-Koo for inspiration, Mama Z. :)

You leave me breathless! (Of course, Plath's oven would leave me even more so!)

Day 1: Write

Thanks for the haiku. I love the form and was shamed away from them by the haiku haters. I may give them another try. Plath, oven, Oom.

Cheryl said...

Haiku is a form I love. You've done it justice.

This made me laugh. Plath would be proud.

Christine said...

What's wrong with Haiku? Will we see one a day now? There is always take out...

this is very creative hmmmmm Plath's oven could be worse. It has been so long since I have read anything of hers, I need to go back and re-read a bit, her first published poem was at 8 I think? Hmmmm

i literally laughed out loud at "try to edge me toward the oven." really clever and that's hard to do in haiku.

i haven't written mine for today. now i don't want to ~ i'll have to read yours afterward for now on. {smile} ♥ dani

Laurie Kolp said...

Great 'ku... I haven't written one in awhile. Thanks for sparking an interest.

Never read Plath; I much prefer witty haiku like this. ;)

Just stay away from the moon and the yew tree!

beccagivens said...

Well, I must admit, I had to google Plath ... not sure I understand but the last line is very clever!!

Evelyn said...

I know I say it again and again, but I just love your style!
