an old issue and some new haiku

Filed under: Haiku or Senryu — David Giacalone @ 11:18 pm

 

A favorite target of f/k/a punditry (see this posting and that one) was back in the news this week: the silly Florida Bar is busy banning the use of various vicious animals in lawyer ads, for fear of demeaning the profession — confirming that “sharks, wolves, crocodiles and piranhas” belong to the per se unlawful category they created for pit bulls.  (see this Law.com article, via LegalBlogWatch and How Appealing)  Perhaps in response, the Miami firm of Panter & Panter has gone from the lean-mean panthers we featured last April to cuddlier chubby ones.
  

dogBlack   While things stay the same for the legal profession, the haiku world — especially, our newest family member Laryalee Fraser — keeps creating new ku for your enjoyment.  Here are a pair of hers from the brand new issue of Roadrunner, and another (out of 5) appearing in Simply Haiku‘s Autumn 2006 issue.  Even dagosan gets into the act with some wild birds.

of the harvest moon
the barn door open
suitcase packed —  NoloShark 
the weathervane
points north

spring equinox —
the toilet paper roll
off-center
  

  

  

  

  

almost payday
the wind tugs at
my pocket

early March —
the weather vane goose
still heading south

 

  

 

winter gale —
the crows fly farther
than the crow flies
