Silly Haiku Wednesday — Passion

The theme for this week is: passion.
We’ll call this one:
A teacher’s Mission

Join the fun!

I love the children
Society has cast out
and help them belong.

Yes, I know a proper Haiku is so much more than a 5-7-5 syllable pattern, but I wasn’t invited to do a proper Haiku. I was asked for a silly one, and Jenn explains the concept thusly:

I was recently told by a reader that what we’ve been doing all this time is not so much “Haiku” but “Senryu” because we aren’t specifically discussing nature, and we often inject humour to our works of literary brilliance.

To this I reply, simply; “Don’t care!”

In fact, he’s right. However, I’m not a Haiku purist – and most people, which until that day included me, don’t know and really won’t care to know the difference. What we’re doing is expressing our thoughts and feelings in a format that makes us happy. It tickles our funny bones. It inspires creativity and, more importantly, camaraderie. So really, what we call it is largely irrelevant. But thanks for your opinion.

Silly Haiku Wednesday — Time

The theme for this week is: time.
We’ll call this one:
The Messy House Haiku

Join the fun!

Always chores to do,
Always blogs to visit and read,
No time to do both.

Light is my life force.
I worship the Son and sun.
Shine on me, oh Lord.

A proper Haiku is so much more than a 5-7-5 syllable pattern, but I wasn’t invited to do a proper Haiku. I was asked for a silly one, so here it is — the theme for this week is music:

Play it Trumpet Man
Blow your horn for all to hear
Make music for us
