There is far too much drama going on here. If drama were water we’d all have drowned hours ago. So, in an effort to find some zen moments after work I wrote a haiku.
Don’t ask me why a haiku. I think it had something to do with eating Chinese food at the moment. And yes, I know haikus are Japanese.
Iron Beast Warrior
Muzzle raised up to the sky
Rust frozen deep sleep
That was WAY too serious and spooky so I tried again. Holy crap this was supposed to be relaxing not depressing!
They say write about something you know. So I tried a few other ideas.
Upstate New York Winter
Frozen crust, slush ice
Sliding, gliding no control
Swish crunch snow fuck
Bert hey Bert hey Bert
Hey are you sleeping yet Bert?
Go to sleep Ernie
Slurp chomp munch munch burp
Close your goddamn mouth you slob
I know where you sleep
Hey, this is easy! People get paid to do this poetry stuff? Sign me up! I could write a book of these in about an hour.
I’m starting a little community project slash experiment.
Let’s see how many of the new blog readers are creative writers too! It’s not that hard.

All I want you to do is write a haiku poem.
A simple 5-7-5 syllable excerpt from life.
Anything is fair game.
The odder the better!
Give it a try.
