Haiku for 2010-11-09:

Cleaning out the Blog’s cobwebs I fell upon some of early Haiku which I posted here in 2007.  As I just started my RAMBLING IN HAIKU endeavour I thought I’d reproduce it below:

Into bed I climb
Exhausted empty tired
I rest in dreamland

Drab walls closing in
Abandonment felt within
Hopeless is the fight

Losing at each step
redemption not for angels
cast down for all time

Dislocated Bound
located by lack of strings
whose puppet am I

I’m starting something new. I started writing Haiku, albeit pretty bad ones, a few years ago, and then I stopped for no apparent reason. Now I want to try writing them again, and this time I want to produce at least one a day. I want to take the necessary time required to get into the space for crafting a Haiku each day. Yes, they may be bad, at least to begin with, but they make my brain-meats function in a different way, and look at the world differently.

I’m also doing the haiku composition manually, with a pen on an index card. There is something special about doing it this way. Watching the ink go into the paper. Creating a stack of poetry I created, produced. It is also the creation of a routine and daily habit, things I am notoriously bad at.

I’ll post here the Haiku I manage each day.

Aside: I did want this to be everyday, but the last two days I’ve been under the weather and haven’t produced anything.

steady rain falling
cleansing and continuing
rhythm stays steady

Into bed I climb
Exhausted empty tired
I rest in dreamland

Drab walls closing in
Abandonment felt within
Hopeless is the fight

Losing at each step
redemption not for angels
cast down for all time

Dislocated Bound
located by lack of strings
whose puppet am I
