Five Haiku Poetry: Slaves to Our Words

You open your mouth –

part-time slaves, part-time masters

emerge–all your words.

 

My tongue finds each one.

I taste and roll them around –

swallow verbs and nouns.

 

Let’s fill to bursting

my giant dictionary

with your new entries.

 

Commingling, melding,

fumbling into each other.

No sentence structure.

 

Words in disarray.

We scatter Scrabble letters.

Every night, we play.

  1. These turned out very well, I think! I wasn’t sure my contribution was up to snuff, but they do work together quite nicely. Yours especially.

    Here’s to another year of writing!

    • Are you kidding me? I love your haiku poems and where they took me — I felt both naughty and brainy writing them 😀

      Yes, another year of writing, indeed! Never hesitate if you’d like to send me work for my blog or SMM.
