American Haiku: Silent Bathhouse


Friendly Fairy Tales


dawn slips in more silently than a bathhouse on an icy lake

Note: Be kind, this is my first ever American Haiku, which I find to be much harder than the usual form. It was a form created by Allen Ginsberg, who brought it away from nature toward our modern, urban lifestyle and left it high and dry on one line, as more similar to the original haiku form, which was not broken into lines. It was inspired by the Carpe Diem Haiku Kai Special #9, although I hesitate to link up given my newbie-ness. (Newbie-verbosity?) Joke cracking in a nervous way is never pretty.
