About These Haiku

I started writing these haiku as an exercise to sharpen my brain. I soon found out writing these little three line poems is really fun!

Technically, most of the poems here aren't haiku, as traditional Japanese haiku are about nature and the seasons. The compositions here should really be called Senryu, which follow the same 5/7/5 format of haiku, but are commonly humorous and about human foibles.

But since many people are familiar with concept of haiku and nobody knows what senryu are, we'll just call all the poems on this site haiku. Beware, an actual legit haiku may sneak in occasionally.

By the way, the plural of "haiku" is "haiku".

My goal is to write one haiku for every day of the year 2020. Some days there might be more than one as current events warrant.

I hope you have as much fun reading these as I'm having writing them!
