Haiku Quartet

An “Acrostic Fly Haiku,” as suggested by Acrostics Only:

Free-floating on air,
Light as a feather, it soars,
Yielding to a swat.

A “Relief Haiku,” as suggested by Sensational Haiku Wednesday:

Writing on deadline—
no ideas, none, nada.
Then, at last, relief.

Forking over rent—
More than many can handle
if they like food too.

Crafting a poem
takes work, skill, art, cleverness.
Damn … I left out wit.
