old brothel -
a FOR SALE sign
atop another

    Hi - I like that one! :) Aren't haikus supposed to be 3-5-3? or 5-7-5?

    Yours is 3-4-5. Just wondering how they work. perhaps all different ways?

    post funeral---
    a prostitute sleeps
    by herself

    skid row...
    a kitten clings on to
    the hunchback´s hump

    at the end
    of memory lane,
    sun going down

    old brothel
    an old man
    mills around

    is this a haiku? if you think so, please
    tell me why.

    down the blue star highway...

    I like how Haiku has shifted from the very strict 5-7-5 structure.So, to those in doubt, Haiku no longer has a definition. When a Haiku is created, then it will reveal itself, I suppose.

    Love Fran's work - one of the best Haiku writers of today.

    winter day's path
    ruffle grey--
    squirrely baby squirrel
