As my last post was about Fibonacci poetry, and I mentioned Haiku as a favourite form I enjoy, I thought I'd post a few haiku that I've written. These were published by Sam's Dot Publishing in 2007 in a collection called HAHAKU, edited by Teri Santitoro. Hope you enjoy!

Fast Food

shut the door, strap in
close your eyes and hold your breath
ten seconds to lunch

Blood Donor

nurse, he's anaemic
what did he murmur to you?
vampires suck, big time

Cry Wolf

kids, the moon is out!
lycanthropy woods next stop!
dad, are we 'were' yet?

Tempus Refero

it's a time echo!
what did you say that is called?
it's a time echo!

Fibonacci Poetry

Fib or Fibonacci Poetry is an experimental poetry form very similar in style to haiku, but based on the Fibonacci sequence. Both fib and haiku follow a strict structure. Whereas haiku usually has three lines of a syllable count of 5/7/5 a typical fib has six lines and a count by line of 1/1/2/3/5/8
It's a style that I quite like (I also enjoy haiku) so here are a few of mine. If you have any you want to post in reply please do so, but be aware, they are addictive!

my ceiling
transcends earthly ties,
lying on my bed my mind soars

they cover faces,
fill your guts with kids, then, kaboom!

warps time,
sucks matter
and traps gravity.
so, who pulled out the bloody plug?

Look out!
Mad robot!
It's running amok!
Told you not to install Windows!
