daily haiku, Nov 5th and 6th

my brain is sludge
but writing takes
the sludge away

I yearn for touch
for fingers on skin
both mine and hers

NOTE: I have a huge urge to count syllables, even if I know haiku isn't about that... the thing is, when I finish a haiku and it's not 5-7-5, I feel like I can never use it in a haiku death match. So, I re-worded these two to 5-7-5

the fog in my brain
is cleared away with a bit
of writing magic

I yearn for fingers
on long stretches of smooth skin
my fingers and hers

"daily haiku" - Nov 2nd, 3rd, 4th

Started a new job on Monday, so have missed the haikus since then - it's been busy and tiring... Still, I want one per day, so will do that:

dear support phone role,
I don't want you any more,
sincerely, Travis

every first Wednesday
it's poetry in motion.
Spoken word, bitches!

Rap battles are great
mate, it's the bait and switch, the
letters on slate, word!

And since I missed out on a few, I'll add another one:

poetry collects
inside window and door frames
like empty spaces

Daily haiku, December 1st

pick a great comic
read it from the beginning
SMBC rocks!

bonus:
new job tomorrow
I start far too early. I'm
a 9AM guy.

daily haiku, Nov 30th

worldly possessions
lose importance as we age
and memory goes

daily haiku, Nov 29th

Word of the day: Manuka

Manuka honey
requires a special bee, but
the stings are the same

daily haiku, Nov 28th

facebook wastes my time
like nothing else ever has
except jerking off
