Haiku City

This post was inspired by a conversation with a fellow haikuist, TJ Paris, who introduced me to the words “haikuist” and “haikunomics”… I get the feeling I’ll be returning to this topic 🙂

The haikuist spoke
In measured three line thought bursts

The haiku cleaner
Swept all the day’s dirt away
With a three-part brush

Old haiku park-drunk
Slurred random haikuisms
At all passers-by

Haikunomist spoke
Of voodoo haikunomics

The haiku lawyer
Didn’t win a single case.
Haiku has limits…

  1. Love them! To have done less would have been a false haikuonomy. I love the drunk’s slurred haikuisms and the haikuist’s measured lines in particular. 🙂
