October Haikus

Hello again.

Here are some haikus that I have written for this week's assignment. Although they aren't fantastic, I feel they capture some moments in time.

Honey is wounded

But will regain its old shape.

Flesh sweetens lemon.

Autumn seeps through cracks.

The ochre leaves fall wanton.

Shut the window now.

Chocolate proem:

It melts on the tongue for all

In every season.

The last bus from Leam.

My head is throbbing dullness.

Autumn winds cool it.

In addition to this, we were asked to write some modern haikus, so I played around with the form a bit here. I have also included a nonsense haiku, a la Jabberwocky.

He/she/it/they is/are seeing/sleeping/dreaming/holding/grasping/clutching this:

Winter/Autumn/Summer in its glorified/splendourous/villainous/sarcastic/scandalous

Reign over/under the strong/mild/boy/girl/child.

Broon high with the splodge-

The middle of Gloon is harsh

When spitoons hide cabbage.

That's it for the moment, but I hope to put the rest of this week's assignments up tomorrow.
