Lies

HistoriansToday my haiku is from July 1st of my book A Haiku Book of Days for Historians, Storytellers, and Other Guardians of Truth, one of a 7-book series. The haiku topic for today is “Lies ”:

if you have blind friends
choosing to believe big lies
let them learn. love them

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.

If you’re interested in the story of how The Haiku Book of Days series came to be, check out my previous blog post here. You can purchase this book on Amazon here

  1. Shirley Ellis sang
    The Name Game in sixty-four,
    bo-na-na fan-na!

    Silly syllables
    created nonsense names that
    were hard to pronounce

    “There wasn’t any
    name that (she) couldn’t rhyme”, but
    spellcheckers beware!

  2. Oops!
    Somehow I posted my response to the ‘Names’ Friday haiku response here in ‘Lies’ the prior Friday haiku topic.
