and You Think You are Confused . . .

Many months ago I participated in Haiku-Heights month-long challenge – to write and post a haiku every day for a month.  On day 31 I found myself at Haiku-Low and never thought I’d write another haiku again.

As usual I rarely listen to myself . . . . couldn’t resist this prompt = “clarity”
     Clarity is clear
     If you want obfuscation
     Obscure clear intent

If you don’t know what a haiku is here’s the explanation from Haiku-Heights.

  • “Haiku is Japanese poetry form that has three meaningful lines which are complete and reflecting nature.
  • Haiku have syllabic limitations as well. A traditional one has eleven or seventeen syllables, in a strict 3-5-3 or 5-7-5 format.”

“We (Haiku-Heights) wish to celebrate the haikai forms through your words. Some poets are straying away from the Haiku format so kindly stay within the Haiku limitations. I know it is difficult but very challenging too!!”

Now, it’s possible that Haiku-Heights might think I’ve strayed but I want to assure Leo that my haiku reflects nature – the nature of man and is VERY meaningful . . . to me.

P.S.  I suspect that Leo who hosts Haiku-Heights has figured out it’s best just to humor me hoping that one day I might turn into a more serious poet.

Thank you Leo.
