Haiku Police


He slapped his face hard

5-7-5! Mel’s shouting

Fine! I’ll rewrite it

This haiku was inspired by Mellow Curmudgeon (Barry K Rosen) who is nothing short of a haiku guru. He also has a very sharp wit which has stabbed me a few times. When I first started writing haiku, he was and still is one of my most encouraging and supportive writer friend. He doesn’t pull the punches, either, and my ruddy complexion is all because of him! Just kidding….well, kinda.
Thank you, Mel. You must know how much I respect and adore you; hence, the violent haiku.
