Haiku Friday – Tangle

Today my haiku is from February 6th 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 “Tangle”:

cold winter winds whip
through the wide open window
tangles your hair wild

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.

One thought on “Haiku Friday – Tangle

  1. So I call this “The
    Tangled Prequel To This Week’s
    Haiku Adventure”

    Friday haiku and
    the topic is tangle so
    I recall the quote:

    “Oh what a tangled
    web we weave when first we prac-
    tise to deceive” – Scott

    The theme is tang-GLE
    not tang-GLED but close enough
    so I continue.

    And then I have that
    hypen that breaks the word prac-
    tise (British spelling)

    in two parts and that
    really bothers me. Is it
    enough to redo?

    Oh what a tangled
    mess we do, when first we try
    a “quote” haiku!
