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
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.
