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. Now, in my fourth year, I'm writing 3-5-3 haiku on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, 5-7-5 on Tuesdays and Thursdays, 6 word haiku on Saturdays, and resting from all the rules on Sundays.

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 and a novelization of the life of Joan of Arc this year, and am the author of 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.

 by brick and stone
 urban waters
 hugging the curbs
day 14717-18-2014
 a dark street
 the moon shouldered aside
 by brick and stone

 their shadows
 follow them down
 a dark street
day 14697-16-2014
 beneath the moon
 the trees reassert
 their shadows
