Your daily haiku hot spot
Read and write one now
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. They will also all be 3 lines of 5, 7 and then again 5 syllables.
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.
