A couple of Haikus

The following  couple of poems aren’t typical haikus  because they don’t include a kigo ( a seasonal reference) and they don’t abide by the well-known haiku pattern (     three lines of 5, 7 and 5 syllables ) but I hope they are imagistic enough and capture the moments I want  to share with you .


A salmon swims down a  river

leaps out of a waterfall

a grizzly bear  snatches  it .

 

A squirrel  scampers   out of a hole

Into a large thick  turf

                                                             A golden  egale grabs  the squirrel up.

  1. I like these haiku’s! I have not yet tried my hand at them. I just heard a phenomenal one from my friend… I can’t remember the exact text. It goes through the gruesome adjectives… claws, pasty grin and flashes of red. Then it ends with “I hate clowns”! I cracked up.

  2. Love your Haiku’s …they are impressive …something about them leaves a mark on my soul…maybe because they are short and I can take it in quickly…..Thank You..!
