Freestyling Haiku

Theme: Freestyle

I plan to post about my workshop tomorrow, honest!


  1. You're not floundering at all!!

    I love the bird haiku and the photo to go, that's quite some hairstyle!

    Have a lovely day,

  2. Lovely haiku, Madeleine. The bird piccie really makes me smile!

    Hope the antibios kick in asap, wishing you better.

  3. I wish that I could write lovely haiku when I was sick! :-) Hope you feel better soon.

  4. I'm still in recovery myself--but at least I didn't have to endure medical students.

    Hope you get well soon.

  5. I think freestyle is the way to go with poetry. Of course,I'm biased. I love stream of consciousness stuff.

  6. the first one was super cute, that pic is too much. :)

    the remaining two are fabulous as always. three splendid haikus in a bunch.


  7. Flounder is a fish
    With flailing tail, shiny scale:
    Swim away, my friend!


  8. you're totally not floundering you're swimming with the big fish! LOL

  9. Great haikus on freestyle - especially the wonderful birdie one!! LOL!!!

    And none of this floundering - your haikus are spirited and fun!

    Please take care and rest and get better Madeleine!! x

  10. Great haikus! I hope you feel better soon.

  11. The first pic of the bird-hair-style made me smile!! Lovely Haikus too!!

  12. Hi Madeleine

    I do hope the antibiotics knock this thing on the head. it's no fun having the vavavoom knocked out of you!

    Your Haiku made me smile - and I know what you mean about it being so much more difficult when you don't have a focus!

    I slipped in one with the subject of freestyle. :)


  13. Love your haiku.
    I'm a fellow crusader and follower. :)

  14. How sweet of you to write a Haiku about my morning hairdo. lol
    Take care and feel better soon.

  15. My oldest had to do a big poetry assignment for school. I'll have to ask her if Haiku was a part of it.

    I like the changes you've made on your blog, and is that a pic of you I see in the upper right? Or has it been there all this time and I'm just catching on?

    Feel better soon. :)

  16. Great verse. Loved them all. Hope you're feeling better.

    Greetings from a fellow Crusader.

  17. Good ones! Love the bird's 'do. Hope you feel better quickly!

  18. LOL! Bless you all
    I wouldn't count them as my best haiku, but they are such fun to write even when you're feeling ill, though a proper poem needs all my brain power, so I've not written one of those for a while.

    What a great haiku Jazzbumpa. :O)

  19. Love the haikus! Hope you're feeling better. Your advice from the workshop transcends all genres, I have some great little stories from overused subjects. I'd like to think I could publish those after a more original one, once my name is out there. I'd hate to waste a great story just because the subject has been done to death.

  20. I always enjoy your haiku, Madeleine. Thanks for sharing with us.

  21. That is the funniest bird!
