Haiku Friday: Home

WritersToday my haiku is from July 31st of my new book A Haiku Book of Days for Writers, Painters, Musicians, and Other Artists, one of a 7-book series. The topic for today is: “Home”

words pop out your mouth
once you birth them, they leave home
gone to see the world

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.

You can purchase this book on Amazon here.

One thought on “Haiku Friday: Home

  1. we never truly
    leave home – we always take some
    part of it with us

    fondly remembered
    or tearfully regretted
    home is always there

    to center us or
    to propel us far away
    home is always there

    encourage and lift
    or reject, wound, and suppress
    home is always there

    you cannot go home
    again because you truly
    never ever left
