Sundry Haiku and Tanka
Prompted to write a school-related haiku, I ended up with a tanka. I just couldn’t seem to fit this true tale into a mere seventeen syllables:
Classroom clock won’t move,
its hands dulled by droning prof,
who catches my stare
and yells, “If you’re bored, then go.”
Lesson learned — I take my leave.
Continuing with an education theme, I’ve used Three Word Wednesday’s drag, mumble, penetrate prompt in this haiku:
who mumbles at his lectern —
a scholarly drag.
Drop the “f” from “flaws”
and you’re left with the word “laws,”
most of which are flawed.
What greater pleasure
than a standing ovation
from the man you love.
