Thursday Prompts-Haiku, Limerick, and More...

  

Haiku  3-5-3 Form:

A bull’s-eye,
A knot on a tie,
Make thoughts fly.

Haiku 5-7-5 form

Diet does do wonders,
To stay charming and fit,
Drink lots of water.

A Limerick:

I try to impress when I write,
But things aren’t always right,
Which topic to choose,
What term to use,
They often give me fright.


A Poem

In my mind there’s an art gallery,
Where nothing is dull,
Especially when George Washington on a shiny parquetry
turns his eyes on you.
.
You may see six-legged dogs,
You may find four-eyed frogs,
Be aware of pink sexy hogs,
Don’t get hit by flying logs.
.
  
Wash your face
before you enter a chess race.
Don’t yawn
when things go quiet before dawn.
.
Erase memories from your brain,
Digest bitter truth,
Leave behind everything that’s absurd,
Exit without missing a tooth.

i love the limerick, it's funny & i can really relate to it. :)

Keri said...

I can sympathize with your limerick! Sometimes I have so much spinning around in my head that I just have to write it all out - no matter how disorganized - so that I can think.

Gemma Wiseman said...

Beautiful sparkling thoughts drift through the haiku forms and then, as a finale, seem to explode into the dimensions of a poetic gallery! Beautiful!

You are a versatile writer.. and I like all the forms specially the limerick. Have to try that form.

That art gallery sure looks scary.. very imaginative place.

Here's a weird wonder for you--a 4 lb dog with a head the size of a grapefruit! She's better tonight, but I am still freaking out. I do not like the desert right now.

Once upon a time, I knew the difference between a haiku, limerick, and poem. But now my mind stays in fog on forgotten English lessons from my past. Thanks for sharing!

Teresa Marie said...

A wonderful collection of poems. Of course, being a limerick addict, I was especially partial to your limerick. :)

I'd love to see you at my weekly Limerick-Offs. A new one has just begun. :)

Brian Miller said...

Harry Nicholson said...

Thanks for calling on my page to read 'Geese'. You have a medley of verse forms on here today; they hint at a writer in a bright state of mind. Well done!

Good work on the haikus, and nice try with the limerick — you've almost got it. Just try counting out the number of beats per line (look at some samples by Lear and others) and then you really will impress!
