Haiku Friday: Blood

zen gardenHere’s my haiku for today, on the subject of Blood:

feel your blood run free

through your veins, around your heart

you can hear it hum

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: Blood

  1. My blood doesn’t hum.
    Apparently it doesn’t
    know the right tune.

    “There is power in
    the blood.” So why do I feel
    faint when I see it?

    Life force dripping out,
    I can’t stand the sight of blood,
    especially mine!
