That time I was in a Haiku Club

Once upon a time, I was in a club which required its members to send a haiku by text message (SMS), one day per week. Each member had an assigned day (I think mine was Monday, then Wednesday).

It was a great way to spark a little creativity into daily life. I learned a lot about my friends and how they saw the world. I wish I had saved more of them.

Here are just the few of mine that I still have, because I blogged about them on my old site.

Little black dresses
And all the right subscriptions
Thought I was ready

Raw temptation of
sprinklers never fades with age…
Wet grass loves bare feet

Red-winged blackbird dreams,
Bicycles, reeds in ditches,
was this history?

Blame music, you could

‘Late submission’
Priorities change.
Scarlett in the cotton field,
painted backdrop skies.

Will said there’s a tide,
Take this current. I meant to.
Don’t know what went wrong.

‘Social studies’
At 9, I colored
my state bird blue. The kids laughed.
I still think I’m right.
