A Sunday Haiku Showdown

Posted on Updated on


First of all, allow me to present the participants:






It all started with…


“from the love I have

through the pain I will embrace

to the life I want”


And then continued with…



i love this poem

it is so very clever

please write another


my body was weak

replying was put on hold

i had to get food


i understand you

we all need some nourishment

it was worth the wait


happily admit

this poetry geekery

is making me laugh


it makes me laugh too

poetry can be such fun

and good for the soul


who would have known that

until experiencing

expression in short


i think we should try

to post this conversation

on both of our blogs


i say let’s do it

post this haiku nerdery

i just wonder how


i find it a thrill

to squeeze my words so tightly

into such a form


i really agree

maybe the future will be

one-word poetry


i like that idea

let me have a go at it

here is my word – poem


truely love your word

for me another one though

‘love’ my word will be


your word is so sweet

and i find myself thinking

our words are the same


maybe all words are

same reflection of a truth

we find in all hearts


i think you are right

and very clever, that is

when shall we publish?


let’s do it right now

we’ll each make a version and

publish when ready


i was just about

to say exactly the same

what shall we call it?


hmm i’m not sure yet

maybe Haiku Geekery

or what do you think?


i have to cook now

but i am coming right back

what fun this has been


go eat without stress

i’m just working out the form

playing with design


I’m ready to post

A Sunday Haiku Showdown

you like the title?


i like it a lot

a sunday haiku showdown

ready when you are


okay let’s go then

put this boat in the ocean

*that was really lame*


I’ve never done a Haiku before and then suddenly one was there, coming from I don’t know where. But seriously, how awesome is Haiku?!

I just had so much fun :D


And do go and check out Kyle’s amazing version of our WP synergy on kylemew.com – you will not be disapointed.

Btw here is the original version (or just scroll down) – somehow the conversation order tweaked a bit, though.. Ah well..

    I love it! This is poetry coming to life in real life…plus that part about love and poem being and meaning the same…nice.

      I hadn’t thought of that, ‘poetry coming to life in real life’ – I like that.
      Thank you so much for commenting and adding an extra aspect :)

        No problem, it’s nice to see poetry that relaxed and fun. I think a lot of poets are trying too hard to be serious and forget that poetry is about expressing yourself.

          Yea maybe you are right about that.. Personally, I love being serious (or in complete despair) but even more I love to just let out whatever is there – playing with that process is just amazing.

            I know what you mean, I typically write my best poetry when I’m under a lot of stress and I’m purging the negative feelings. But every once in awhile it’s nice to kick back and write something silly

              You are so right. Right now it’s getting late but tomorrow I’ll definitely go check out your blog – love the name of it!
