inside his burrow
dug into the arroyo
sleeps a diamondback
a covey of quail
zip and dart, running quickly
snake opens his jaw
If you enjoy haiku, you might enjoy reading the blog of children's author, poet and quilter Maureen Wartski who makes a practice of writing a haiku a day.
A haiku journal Simply Haiku has lots of good reading and you might enjoy my friend Lenard Moore's haiku. He and the North Carolina Haiku Society have taught me a lot about haiku.
A fun exercise to try is to get a few friends together and try writing linked haiku. Each person can write one haiku that links to the one before. Or you can write them yourself. Take the haiku you wrote yesterday and write another haiku to link to it. You are welcome to post your double haiku in the comments section.
Lenard Moore has told me about haiku parties, called renga, in Japan where tables of poets sit to write haiku directed by a haiku master.
