Haiku Poetry

I wrote a few haiku-style poems for National Poetry Month 2009. '80s Sense of Style is a response to the challenge to write a haiku about the 1980s. Classic Journey shows the connection between the band and a more recent television show. Medicine Bottle is a haiku about a mundane object.

Later that same month, I wrote On the Bubble, a set of three haiku poems about the nerve-wracking wait for news about whether my favorite shows would be renewed. For the record, one of them was renewed and is still on the air, although not without a struggle. The other show was canceled but lives on in the memory of its fans.
