Haiku – Daily Grind

Another late night

Working fast on the third shift

A hard-earned paycheck

I kept hearing this song in my head when I heard the prompt for the week.

I thought I would write a Haiku with it in mind.

Daddy carries his daughter

Passed out in his arms

A boat on the sea

Waves carry the brave sailor

Forward towards home

Through the fire and flames

One by one he carried them

No man left behind

Haiku – Distant Rattle

Loud train horn blowing

Across the solid steel tracks

Wheels rolling forward

+

There is just something about a train whistle. It reminds me of my childhood and staying the night at my grandparent’s house. She lived over in the coal area of the Appalachian Mountains and those coal trains used to rattle by a lot back then. Good memories. So, what do you think when you hear a train whistle?

Haiku – 3 Looks at Bend

Pleasant start today

With cool air and morning dew

Summer bends to fall

Sometimes you must bend

Give in just a tiny bit

To make things better

Sharp bend in the road

Sports car going way too fast

Dead man’s curve ahead

Haiku – 3 Looks at Court

Judge slams the gavel

It echoes around the court

Verdict has been reached

Her moment to shine

Basketball court falls silent

Final shot goes swish

Tennis ball bouncing

Across the grassy green court

Back and forth it goes

Bleeding Springsteen: How Bruce’s Writing Inspires this Weirdo.

Great post. You should check it out today.

I recently posted a list of fifteen writers who have had an influence on my work. One of those writers was Bruce Springsteen. Does he write books? No, but he does write stories. He creates characters and places and moments in his songs that breathe just as well as Jack Torrance or Scout Finch. You’ve lived in his towns. You’ve felt the pain of losing someone close to you and the joy of doing the things you love. He writes about things that have influenced his day-to-day life as well as yours, and he does so effortlessly. Okay, he makes it seem that way, but I’m sure he fights for his words as hard as any of us writers do.

There are plenty of authors who mention the impact of his work in their own. Brian Keene is the big one that comes to mind (he does have a book…

Haiku – Tears and Pain

Under lock and key

Her heart held in rusted chains

Life full of abuse

I also had two other closing lines for this one. Curious what you guys thought of them. Do you think either one of these would have been a better way to close this Haiku?

Waiting on her prince

Captive of abuse

Haiku – Friday Night in July

Dark has settled in

Cold beer, music, and football

It’s time to relax

Thanks: en.wikipedia.org

I’ve gotten hooked on Canadian Football – keeps me pre-occupied until the NFL and College Football starts back in the fall. This year though I might have to try and squeeze in some Canadian Football as well. If you need a football fix then this is your way to go until the fall. This is real football with real stakes right in the middle of summer. Sounds good to me. Find more on the CFL here: www.cfl.ca

Haiku – Puzzle

Ten pieces scattered

Nine hundred and ninety done

Almost completed

+

For more prompts like “puzzle” go here: Haiku Horizons

Do you guys like to do puzzles? I’ve tinkered with them and I have found that the last ten pieces or so can be the hardest to do. Especially if you are working on white clouds or a solid color – like a sky or an ocean scene. I always do the border first and then fill in the middle, leaving the solid colors for the very last. That’s just me though.
