3 Haiku


doing a runner
increasingly popular -
after eating out

a silver dragon
sliding    spitting and foaming
when the river floods.

youthful unemployed
seventeen front page portraits -
smiling happily

I think I caught a bit of haiku fever this morning, too.

I hope you haven't been taking your first one literally yourself? LOL

I like the second one the best...but, of course, it is the most traditional.

I like the 17 youthfully unemployed, smiling happily. New high school graduates?

Nice, a three-fer!
one. I love to watch people exercise.
two. Dangerous river and dragon too.
three. Adults employed too and unable to support their children.

Thanks Everyone

I definitely get the impression that most folk prefer the traditional haiku, which cheers me enormously. Though the others can be fun, it's the traditional form that holds depth and gravitas - sorry if that makes me a wet blanket.

The thing about the unemployed youth, was that I saw it as another example of how folk ass ume they must always smile when confronted by a camera lens - well, a few exceptions, but on the whole they do.
