‘ku for you

I’m a day behind already over at Quickly. Yesterday she bade us to break a habit, take a recent poem and tweak it in a way we don’t usually write. I messed around with the day before’s poem, and turned some its words into a haiku, which I never write (they always come out sounding disjointed and silly…plus I know you’re not supposed to stick to the 5/7/5, but my ‘ku brain tends to think in those syllables.) Anyway, such as it is…


‘ku for you

you left me bravely
fields of living poppies sleep
failing pages, hands



Check out the full prompt over at Quickly.

    I have the same problem with haiku. Have you ever tried the form “American sentence”?

  2. I think it turned out well. Well, not for the one who was left! But the form is good!
