Haiku Friday: Chains

HistoriansToday my haiku is from December 11th of my book A Haiku Book of Days for Historians, Storytellers, and Other Guardians of Truth, one of a 7-book series. The topic for today is: “Chains”:

ghosts do not wear chains
the whole point about ghosting:
you are free at last

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: Chains

  1. “Chains, my baby’s got
    me locked up in chains, and they
    ain’t the kind… you… see”

    “Whoa-o these chains of
    love… got a hold on me, yeah
    da ta da ta da…”

    Carole King penned the
    “Chains” music in ’62
    with Gerry Goffin

    The Cookies “Chains” disc
    made Number Seventeen on
    the pop music charts.

    “Chains” grew stronger when
    the Beatles recorded it
    on their first album.

    And fifty years on,
    “Chains” melody still echoes
    in my unchained brain!
