Two Haiku for You

new-brighton-lighthouse

I have found myself
at a loss for words, but here
they come anyhow…

All the lighthouses!
All the lighthouses!
Yet there’s no light to be found.
Pointless monuments!

(Yes, I know the second one is irregular form, but I felt it sounded better with the first line repeated, so I broke the rules!)

  1. Dear Marandar, You are the first to see this – wholly in keeping with your haiku and my comment. Written this minute!
    Flawed
    Listening to Thelonius Monk.
    (Give him a try –
    If you haven’t already)
    I myself am sunk
    In heaven.
    (or is it ‘raised’)
    Anything for a rhyme
    Anytime.)
    Ouch!
    Anyway, there’s genius
    In being flawed:
    In honesty, in bravery –
    Wrong notes,
    Strong, short, long notes;
    Flatted fifths, half-tones the chord;
    Finger placement – absurd!
    Who can be bored!
    Who cares?
    He dares.
    Stares into space,
    Jumps up and down,
    No smile, no frown –
    He plays his junk,
    Always a Monk – Thelonius..
    And so I sit in pillowed bed,
    Caffeinated (to my toes and to the head),
    Cogitating.
    Letting, simply letting…
    Waiting, writing
    With an honesty and spunk (see Monk, sunk, junk)
    Flawed to the gills.
    Hmm, sills, bills, chills, kills…hmm.
