Haiku #35

Shakespeare's audiences snacked
on oysters, sturgeon, steaks and pies
while bantering Sir Toby Belch.

After the 12th Night
of drinking and loud belching
I snack on your poems.

Sometimes, I think to
myself, what hubris I have
to Haiku like you.

The Weaver of Grass said...

Your audiences keep up to date with the news through reading your haiku, Dave - there's a haiku there somewhere but not sure where.

Reading your daily blog
keeps me abreast of affairs
without watching boring TV.

Sorry - not very good Dave

Kass said...

Weaver - Don't be so hard on yourself. It's brilliant. I think it would be great if everyone responded to Dave's Haiku with Haiku of their own, but then, I'm a control freak.

Carl said...

Dave's Haiku's inspire
pen to paper we summon
emulate we aim.

Ronda Laveen said...

Mmmm, oysters and Shakespeare all in one haiku.

An edible thought
I must flee for the kitchen!
Dave makes me hungry.

Mariana Soffer said...

What a haiku, pretty good. Clear truth spoken trough it.

Raj said...

shakespears audience and oysters?
ok so definitely next is romeo and juliet meeting ceasar. :P

I don't suppose I could hire you to ghost write them, could I? Superb.

On the contrary, very good - but what is it about T.V. news? They seem able to make the most dramatic of items totally boring.

Kass again: I'm for that! Brilliant idea.

Great - I feel we're getting into the swim of things, now!

We aim to please.

Enchanted Oak
I do like the idea of an edible thought!

Thanks for that.

I'm up for that, also!

Thinks:- would 'hectoring' be better than 'bantering'? I think that's what audiences used to do...

Carl said...

while feeding the cats this morning I came up with this one..

Like sharks circling
a boat on open water
my cats await food....

Shadow said...

wow, they ate well...

Unknown said...

Hi Dave,

Shakespearean audiences
reflected social mores.
We do likewise.

Dave King said...

Don't know. I started with hectoring and then changed it. I think they're as broad as they are long. Thanks for the suggestion, though.

excellent. I really like that one.


Socially very apt. That one could grow into something more - if you'll forgive the pun, which was half-intended!.
