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 17524-25-2015
 the moon above the trees
 we eye it jealously
 the trees and I
day 17514-24-2015
 taking inventory
 the stocks, the properties
 the moon above the trees
day 17504-23-2015
 the morning light
 the birds
 taking inventory
day 17494-22-2015
 again
 and again
 the morning light
day 17484-21-2015
 slices of the world
 she blinks
 again
day 17474-20-2015
 could see
 through the blinds
 slices of the world
day 17464-19-2015
 that friend or bird
 or anyone on the bus
 could see
day 17454-18-2015
 had nothing to say
 just tapped on my window
 that friend or bird
