March – Poem

01 Mar
March marches boldly
Roars it's way in windily
Creeps out sheepishly

Haiku is a type of short form poetry originally from Japan. Traditional Japanese haiku consist of three phrases composed of 17 phonetic units (called on in Japanese, which are similar to syllables) in a 5, 7, 5 pattern; that include a kireji, or “cutting word”; and a kigo, or seasonal reference. Similar poems that do not adhere to these rules are generally classified as senryū. There is no exact equivalent of kirejiin in English, and its function can be difficult to define. It is said to supply structural support to the verse.

    An energetic Haiku. I am fond of this disciplined form, though, we, as a family haven’t written any for years. There is evidence that we did. Sprog wrote one as an epitaph for my mother in 2001.

    March is so right, so palpable for what March experience can be.

        What a sense of humour and of place!
        Does tomorrow ever move on to post-procrastination ?
