Poetry Sunday #1- Sea Haiku

Haikus are among my favourite types of poetry. They are simple, and the beauty of the haiku is expressing oneself or painting a scene within the economy of words. Traditional haiku operates on a 5-7-5 stanza, but modern haiku eschews such rigidity. I suspect the appeal of haiku is not unlike that of a Tweet, where the writer has only 120 characters to express him or herself. Unlike a Tweet however, haiku is, to my knowledge, untainted by trash talk and Trumpisms.

Sea Haiku

Down goes the anchor

Striped fish swim out of the way

Water turns cloudy
