Lion Around


lion around
in lilac-scented sunshine,
a yellow mellow

Notes: I’m mostly over my virus, and still churning away at a major novel revision. So I’m in the mood to break some haiku rules. ๐Ÿ™‚ Who says haiku can’t have puns or rhymes? Happy Poetry Friday, and thanks to Rebecca Herzog at Sloth Reads for hosting on this cool, sunny spring day. Have fun this weekend!

  1. So sorry you are still fighting the nasty virus. Puns are so much fun and English offers so many opportunities with multiple meaning words and homophones (or homonyms as some prefer). I really like your “lilac-scented sunshine.”

  2. Brenda, I am so sorry that you are ill from a lingering virus. That puts a damper on springtime. Your lion around haiku is just charming and fun to read. I am trying to remember when we had sunshine. Gray days seem to be a pattern on Long Island.

  3. I didn’t know you were still fighting that awful virus, Brenda. Hope it’s gone, gone fast! I love the picture and the haiku, but “lion around” is the best! Happy writing!

  4. Hi Brenda, While in a writing group with a clever person touting as MFA from a prestigious NY college, I learned that Haiku a Japanes form can indeed be written with shorter lines because it is more like the breath sound of the Japanese. Mellow on.
