Welcome to Haiku Diem, where I've been posting one new haiku every day since July 9th, 2010!

You can read the most recent eight days' worth in the panel to the right, and see them all through the Facebook, Twitter, or Google+ links below.

You can receive each day's haiku by "liking" the Facebook page, following the Twitter feed, adding the Google+ page to your circles, or subscribing to the RSS feed.

Note: In the first year of Haiku Diem, I followed the popular 5-7-5 form for my haiku. (Five syllables in the first line, seven in the second, and five in the third.) For Year Two, I switched to 3-5-3. In year three, I took a break from following any pattern at all. In my fourth year, I wrote 3-5-3 haiku on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, 5-7-5 on Tuesdays and Thursdays, 6 word haiku on Saturdays, and rested from all the rules on Sundays. Now, in my fifth and final year, I'm not following any syllabic patterns but am linking every day's haiku into a single long chain of haiku.

About me

I make my living as a software engineer, and live by writing. In addition to these daily haiku, I'm planning to self publish a customizable picture book later this year, and am the author of a novelization of the life of Joan of Arc and The Wineskin Project, a series of short read-aloud plays based on the Gospels that can be freely downloaded for use by churches. You can read more about all this and more at www.AuthorFreeman.com.

My novel of Joan of Arc!

day 17273-31-2015
 winged
 the hawk we could barely see
 the day
day 17263-30-2015
 over dark water
 warm blooded
 winged
day 17253-29-2015
 the first cars
 across the new bridge
 over dark water
day 17243-28-2015
 into my room
 song of the morning birds
 the first cars
day 17233-27-2015
 the world's wind
 finds its way
 into my room
day 17223-26-2015
 my open eye
 touched by
 the world's wind
day 17213-25-2015
 the tip of my finger
 the mountain's peak
 my open eye
day 17203-24-2015
 a wandering ant
 got as far as
 the tip of my finger

See all
