Haiku For Haiku, In HaikuPosted: February 29, 2016
A few months ago, I discovered that there is a town in Hawaii named Haiku. I can’t claim that I discovered the town. I’m pretty sure that the people who live there were aware it was there long before I figured it out.
But learning that the town exists inspired me to write a haiku for Haiku. That little writing exercise got me to thinking about becoming the poet laureate of Hawaii, so I knocked out two more haiku to expand my body of work (you can read all three haiku here).
About a week ago, my wife and I visited Haiku, Hawaii. It is a laid back, pretty little place in the hills.
I could not leave this wonderful place without busting out some haiku. Behold, the world premiere video performance of my Haiku for Haiku, in Haiku.
I know, touching, isn’t it? It’s OK to weep.
And while I was proofreading this post, I wasn’t certain that I knew the proper way to make haiku plural. I looked in to the matter and then created this haiku to help those of you with a bunch of Japanese poetry lying around who may be unsure of how to refer to it all, in the collective sense:
Plural of haiku
A matter of confusion
Never add an S
Back from vacation
Obsessed with haiku
Enough is enough
