Haiku Friday – Mud

Today my haiku is from February 13th of my new book A Haiku Book of Days for Gardeners, Tree-Huggers, and Other Nature Lovers, one of a 7-book series. The haiku topic for today is “Mud”:

so white, so boring
late winter snow needs to leave
get ready for mud

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. And you can now purchase this book on Amazon here.

  1. First Corinthians
    Chapter Thirteen, Verse Thirteen,
    “muddied” a little:

    Now these three endure:
    Dust, dirt, and mud, but of these
    the greatest is mud.
