DURING our recent poetry workshop, Karen Cronin produced a number of delightful haikus, based on the 5-7-5, system. And, for your delight, here they are:

 

Remembering life
the open leather handbag
mooed as it was closed.

---
The Champagne Charlies
face up to the Lager Louts.
The best belcher wins.

---

School girls in white socks
cursed the permanent grass stains
so now go barefoot.

---
Benevolent moon
illuminating the night
makes the shadows shrink.


---

The bull observes me.
Should I take a chance and run?
I find the gate locked!


---
Want to know something?
I have so many secrets!
But I can’t share them.

---

Icicles shatter.
The wind blows over the lake.
Time to go inside.

---

I polish the sun
and put away all the stars
before the day dawns.

---
Tread gently on ice
it may not bear your full weight
and the lake is deep.
