Haiku: False

by Harry

I don’t know if you / i can call this haiku.

Is a woman false when you meet her.

If she has under gone plastic surgery, to be vein.

Or can she still be true to her man.

  1. Hi Harry,

    the rules of haiku are pretty vague. I am never sure myself. I suppose the one characteristic is that there be at least one “fragment” to give it a cut or separation.

    One other interpretation might look like:

    false greeting smile
    plastic surgery to be vain
    does he see truth

    However this isn’t better or worse, just different. — Bill

  2. good one !! maybe could call it an extended haiku.

  3. Harry, check out this blog: http://fiercebuddhist.org/ He posts haiku almost daily… they’re pretty good! I think the basic rule is the lines have a set number of syllables. I think it’s 5-7-5. But then most people don’t really follow that rule anymore… 🙂
