WritersToday my haiku is from September 23rd of my book A Haiku Book of Days for Writers, Painters, Musicians and Other Artists, one of a 7-book series. The haiku topic for today is “Room”:

a room full of books
other lives waiting for you
read and make them real

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.

One thought on “Room

  1. carefully crafted
    words can take us to those rooms
    we dare not visit

    daylight floods the room
    darkness hasn’t won, but each
    night it tries anew
