A Collection of Random Haiku

A Poem by W.R. Singleton

Gaius Julius Caesar - a haiku

Beyond Roman roads

The end of an Empire

So, et tu Brute

 

Ink - a Haiku

Swallow an ink well

Fathomless ocean of naught

On tip of my tongue
 

 

Empirical - a haiku

Empirical views

The world spins on broken thumb

Slightly to one side

 

Haiku - a Haiku

Start 5 syllables

And follow with 7 more

Then back to square 1

 

Jack Kerouac - a haiku

Hey! Jack Kerouac

Yardbird and Charlie Parker

Lonely is your crowd

 

Fyodor D - a haiku

To have walked your streets

and heard "Notes" from your own lips

In your native tongue

 

Thoreau - a haiku

Thanks be to "Walden"

Through which brilliance was shone

Man beyond his years

 

Don Quixote - a haiku

Cervantes' brilliance

I do believe as Sancho

Rise for one more quest!

Not as random as the title leads one to believe. a tribute to greatness with a witty and slightly cynical edge. A wonderful bit of writing in my humble opinion. Had me smiling like an alligator at a lone baby duck....okay...not sure on that metaphor...it's early...need more coffee to minimize my morning exhaust fuel baboon! Anyway, I really enjoyed reading this piece!

Cheers!
