A Just-Post-Solstice Haiku June 23, 2009

Posted by indigobunting in Uncategorized.

early summer days
amass many calories
all those strawberries


1. Craig (Maito Sewa Yoleme) - June 23, 2009

it’s not the berries
that amass the calories
it’s all that whipped cream

2. Wayne - June 23, 2009

consumed strawberries
assume sweeter form, become
Indigo Bunting

3. Bridgett - June 23, 2009


(too hot to compete in the haiku challenge)

4. Adam Byrn Tritt - June 23, 2009

Hot and thick, dark clouds
Scatter lightning through the night.
Midnight bright as day.
Short night, liquid air,
Red sun promises hot day.
Nothing much gets done.

5. Mali - June 23, 2009

Brrrrrrrrrr! sob!

6. indigo bunting - June 24, 2009

mali remember
northern hemisphere envied
you not long ago

7. Eulalia (Lali) Benejam Cobb - June 24, 2009

Wayne, whoever you are, you win! (I bet Indigo thinks so too, but is too polite to say so.)

8. indigo bunting - June 24, 2009

I blush strawberry red.

9. helen - June 24, 2009

Yes, who is Wayne Indigo? A masked crusader whose alter ego is a haikuist?

What poetic form are you tackling next? Can I request a sestina?

10. bettyslocombe - June 25, 2009

Oh yes. because a strawberry
needs more straw
or it goes manky

11. indigo bunting - June 25, 2009

Helen: Wayne is indeed a masked crusader. Or at least I suspect he is. It’s been 28 years and I’m still not sure, but very clever of you to pick up on that so quickly. And you can request a sestina (how like you), but don’t hold your breath, O Great Poet. I wrote one in my youth, but I was young and foolish then—I’m old and foolish now.

Mrs S.: Is this your way of also requesting a sestina?

12. Sweet Familiar - June 25, 2009

Vermont strawberries
So superior to the
Long traveled plastic

13. indigobunting - June 25, 2009

truer words were ne’er spoken, o sweet familiar…

14. bettyslocombe - June 25, 2009

Oh yes. because a strawberry
needs more straw
or it goes manky.
