Jay's Saturday Morning Haiku - 7

Jay's Saturday morning haiku - 7

The English form of the traditional Japanese Haiku includes any or all of the following:

  • The use of 17 syllables, in the form of three lines, with 5, 7 and 5 syllables respectively.  Some haiku may employ 10 - 14 syllables, but 17 is traditional.
  • The use of a season in the poem.
  • The use of a "cut word" or punctuation to set off and compare two images.

 

 

My stain is orange brown.


 

I am rusty stuff, you know –


 

With no place to go.
