New haiku thread

Why was the old one closed?

 

Perched on their long legs
A brace of cranes are busy
Fishing for girders.

My mother was great at Haiku, so here is one she wrote.

                     Smog

 

      Over the hill

    Lies smogville

  Smoggy Sun

  Smoggy moon.

 Useless waste

of fresh air.

An all going

nowhere.

 

 

the more I read it the more it seems like a poem LOL.  

May this one?

                                     Trouble

                         Smile at troubles

                     There only bubbles sailing on in space.

 

                          If you frown

                    You bring them down around you everyplace.

Nice poems Joyful, thanks for posting them.

 

The haiku form is quite closely tied to Japanese, so it is hard to draw a clear line in western works, but I would not consider either of those to be haiku.

Hot breath, blowing fierce.

Look up to see no dragon.

Damn! Summer is here!

Long winding blackened river

Wheels revolve too slow

Why is it called rush hour?
