This site is brought to you by Jason Blacker. I write novels and short stories as well as the poems found on this blog. For my prose writing visit JasonBlacker.com
This is a blog dedicated to the craft and joy and fun of writing haikus. I love them. As often as once a day, I’ll offer a freshly minted haiku for your pleasure. The haikus will be fun, humorous, sad, insightful, biting and all manner of human emotion. Most of them will be in the English version of 5, 7, 5 syllables, but not all. Some will be traditional haiku style of two images and a juxtaposition pulling them together or offering a unique insight. I’ve also decided to add freeform poetry to this blog too.
I offer haikus in the tradition of Kobayashi Issa. A humanistic approach to poetry and life. Meant to lift up the human spirit. Bringing out the best in us, uplifting the human condition.
I hope you enjoy them 🙂
EDIT: On 22 February 2012 I have decided to add my free form poems as well. Just in case you were wondering why there is not a haiku as often as once a day. There will be mostly haikus I imagine, but sometimes my mind wanders and natters and chatters in many syllables.
