one topic - writing

Let's start a Haiku thread...The only rule is it has to conform to the 5-7-5 rule of haiku (first line 5 syllables, second line 7 syllables, third line 5 syllables) and it has to be about writing. Ill start.

I sit and blankly
stare at a computer screen
the cursor just blinks

my muse breezes in
to whisper a word or two
coffee sits ignored

morning sun slips in
my characters beckon me
a lone hunter speaks

a new thought drops in:
"give your thoughts a voice, writer"
next a cricket sings

rain falls in soft sheets
autumn clocks keep slower time
a dove seeks shelter

I am so damn bored
I write this silly haiiku
Instead of working.

This is my first go
At something so new to me
It's not bad really

morning sun on leaves
and the paintbrush wants to know
who made the light green?

My writings are few
But this I can say is true:
I don't haiku. You?

I sit by myself.
Plans for this evening fell through
And, the weather sucks.

Instead of my work
I'm playing this haiku game.
Contract will not come

Screen and mind are blank
The canvas waits to be filled
I have no brushes

the seed of our words
planted in the fresh white page
sprout fictional dreams...

I LOVE Haikus. (I once wrote one about the Incredible Hulk because nobody could give me a better prompt.)
Great Idea.

this explanation
for the odd, recent conflict
it doesn't quite fit

Tired of editing
I take a nap, wake refreshed,
and kill more darlings

I do not haiku
I do not do not I say
Dr. Seuss I ain't

I have to write this
Impressive haiku for you
Oh look! I just did

07-09-2009, 03:10 PM
haiku thread returns
to soften morning thoughts
outside a bird nods

My computer crashed.
Oh noes! My life's work is gone!
"Relax," said the geek.

Music carries me
writing long into the night
one more chapter done

Seven days it waits
I can't stand it, my head hurts....
Ah! the perfect edit

Wind slams rain on glass
I sit bolt upright in bed
An idea has come!

Inbox - hit refresh
Still no agent love letters
Refresh. Refresh. Write.

the story urges
me to write a conclusion
"yes, later" I say

Summer eases in
Warm winds touch shifting branches
Yellow shadows fall

Clouds glide past, empty,
tourists in a blazing sky
trees whisper, "Please rain."

the acronym game
perhaps lurkers are yawning
i should be writing
