The Learning Curve

Haiku Heights challenge for the day is the word “deserted.”


I deserted you

because I learned that your heart

was telling mine lies

  1. I love your Haiku, but I’ve never been good at Haikus. I learned “Tanka” instead. It’s five lines.
    line 1 is 5 syllables or fewer: line2 is 7 syllables or fewer; line 3 is 5 syllables or fewer; line 4 and line 5 are each 7 syllables or fewer. Here is a Tanka by Elizabeth Searl Lamb, “first lady of Haiku” who began writing Tankas in her 80s: I walk and walk ~ through the house to find ~ the light I might have left on ~ oh, July’s ~ full moon!

    I’m not an expert on Haiku, so I don’t know about seasons/nature rules. Rules aside, I like this one because it’s relatable.


  3. I don’t do poetry but my understanding was it was to do with nature. However, like Tiffany said, things might be loosening up. Everywhere. Enough to confuse a person.

    I like your poem because in 13 little words you have created a nice image and then some.


  4. You should check out this blog, http://fiercebuddhist.wordpress.com/2012/04/02/at-the-media-circus/ He posts new Haiku’s almost daily. They’re really good. I don’t think they are all rooted in seasons anymore, I think that’s kind of the “Old School”. Seems that these days they’re more diverse. Great job, now I have my own “deserted” haiku floating in my head… :)


  5. Interesting and unusual for a Haiku! Well done.


Go ahead. I don't bite very hard.
