My First Haiku

First, my apologies for having a faulty “B” on my keyboard. Keyboard problem has been repaired. Lonely Author left dozens of interesting comments regarding your wonderful logs. Culpa mea. I imagine many of you have inspirational logs….er forget it.

Recently, while walking the streets of New York City, a young artist came up to me and asked, “Lonely Author, do you Haiku?”

Do I Haiku? Do I Haiku? The question left me flabbergasted. Not only do I Haiku, I also sudoku, sing songs of Kat Mandu, and have considered vacationing in Xanadu (Sorry for the reference Olivia Newton-John. I Honestly Love You).

Enough nonsense.

Now for the world premier of my first Haiku, which I have cleverly entitled “My First Haiku.”

My First Haiku

why do I exist

hormones raging in the night

mom forgot the pill

Everyone have a wonderful week.

Keep smiling.

Keep writing.

  1. Once again you have successfully reached beyond the boundaries of creative writing and found the sweet spot with your creation. Very clever, very funny and unfortunately true, son. Yes, Luke, I am your father.
    Obviously, your wit and writing have a good time playing with each other. I hope they survive a long time friendship. Well done!!

      1. Let the spewing flow. Serious writers can have a sense of humor and can enjoy their skills as well. I promise, the skills you possess will determine your success as a writer. Satisfy your OWN NEEDS first. That is an important part in achieving success regardless of the field or profession. Although I am not a professional writer, I have written over 100 articles relating to health from every possible angle you can imagine. I have an important message to convey. That has become the “purpose” of my content. Whether I use humor or fear, the content and meaning remains clear. Write from the heart and enjoy your craft. If you are able to do that, you will have reached a level of success few ever attain.
        Stay healthy and happy!

        1. Thank you so much for the encouraging words. You “purpose” is much bigger than you say. You are providing a great service with your content. As you say, I will continue to follow my creative instincts, and go where no man has gone before. LOL Live long and prosper my friend.

  3. I must admit, you have the ability to make one smile. Your writing
    Is rather creative, and satisfying. You were born to write. Every
    Word every sentence is a marriage made in the author world.
    I enjoy reading your article. I am filled with a sense of total
    Satisfaction of peace.,,,, thank you

  4. Sorry, but I had to laugh. Being a mother… and now a grama…

    Maybe you’d like to try a form I created? Here’s and example of a
    Shadorma Summation:
    Purely Divine

    Sort of follows in the tradition of a haibun which is a prose travel-log type piece that can have more than one, but if only one; a concluding haiku.

    1. First, how did you link just the title like that? You created this form? And as for my haiku, well, I hope you get my warped sense of humor. I start every week with humor. An attempt to start everyone’s week with a smile. Thanks for reading my craziness.

      1. I had put (the) shadorma on the end of other poems. But I can’t seem to find the post where my friend and I actually named it a ‘Shadorma Summation’ it was for one of the MLMM prompts, maybe the Shadorma and Beyond prompt.

        I like mixing short forms.

    1. Mine was meant as a joke. I don’t write them seriously. There is some truth to what you say. Just following the breakdown of syllables doesn’t necessarily make a Haiku. For that reason I don’t do them. Thanks for stopping by to read.

        1. Don’t say that. I enjoy reading your posts. You write well. But I do agree with you about Haiku’s losing their meaning. Originally, they were meant to be soulful verses. Today’s version has been watered down by many. .Thanks for stopping by. You may like the poem I will post today. It comes from the heart.
