Beckoning Moon



Full moon beckons him;

White alabaster roundness.

Nice butt, he whispers.

Haiku usually appear without punctuation marks at the end of each line, but I added a semicolon and threw in a couple of periods to try and provoke a sense of curiosity in you…

Come close and let me whisper in your ear, because I don’t want to embarrass you with this rather personal question. Do you know when to use a semicolon? You’re right; it isn’t any of my business, but I’m just trying to be a friend, okay? Maybe you’d always wanted to learn but didn’t want to read something boring and unfunny. Let me ask you this then; would you like to learn to look cool and smart, dispensing a semicolon, from someone who is incredibly hilarious, witty, and quite edgy? Why yes, I am talking about fellow blogger, Katrina from Calliope Writing!

  1. Thanks for both the funny haiku and the pointer to Calliope Writing. I like to see good punctuation (and standard capitalization) in poetry. It’s the same attitude that underlies Occam’s Razor in phil of sci: the world is already plenty complicated; we don’t need obscurantist writing conventions to keep our minds busy.

    • I actually thought of contacting you directly about Calliope, because I knew you’d really like her blog! I’m glad you visited today😊 I also have a surprise for you which you’ll receive no later than tomorrow. Xo

  2. Semi-colons? Hmm… I think I remember how to use them, more or less, but I’ll nip across to have a look. With any luck I’ll get some new ideas. It might be nice to start getting rid of some of that big pile of unused semi-colons I keep in my desk.
