Days 10 & 11: Coronavirus Haiku

To catch up on the past few days, I tried my hand at a handful of haiku poems.

Years ago, I used to write a haiku every day, so I’m getting flashbacks to that. I had forgotten how restrictive the syllable count can feel!

 

Ants traverse concrete

They need no social distance

No six feet apart

 

 

Masks meant for sawdust

Glasses that won’t stop fogging

Each trip to the store

 

 

Outside my window

Two rabbits, one horse…one car

We all watch drive by

 

 

For dinner tonight

We are out of flour and eggs

Cereal will do!
