It’s Haiku Friday again.  For the past twenty years or so, it has been my practice to write one haiku every day. Every Friday I share a haiku here, about whatever topic I happen to choose.  I invite you to write a haiku on this topic too, and share it with me and the readers of this blog.  Just write it in the Comments below. The only rules are: 1) your haiku must be about the named topic; 2) you must follow the 5-7-5 syllable format; 3) no obscenities or hate (I will delete those).  That’s it.

One thought on “Haiku Friday: Zebras

  1. Zebra Clothing Store:
    Stripes are our thing! (No polka
    dots, plaids, or checks)

    Mr. Zebra grins.
    “See anything in a nice
    bright paisley perhaps?”

    Mrs. Zebra: “Cute.
    Stripes are your ev-ryday suit.
    Love your stripes! No gripes.”

    (Sees self in mirror)
    “Do these stripes make me look fat?”
    Mrs. Zebra asks.

    “Stripes are so slimming,”
    says Mr. Zebra, winking,
    “Fits you to a Z!”
