Do You Haiku?

It's been a slow year for publications, at least mine. The year began with three publishers, all had wanted to publish short stories of mine, closing their doors due to the weak economy. I've been shopping things around with a few nibbles. Yesterday I got my first publication of the year. Start small, grow humongous.

It is with our friends at NECON Ebooks. I was one of this month's winners in their Horror Haiku contest.
You can see my poem "Love On The Night Stand" on their website all this month.

Some of you may remember that this is my second win in a haiku contest. My first was for a contest sponsored by Talk Like A Pirate Day and it was, of course, pirate themed. Here be me entry for that one.

At sea the rain stings
The sun blinds me one good eye
Plunder makes me smile

 Have you ever written Haiku? Try it. Just remember the first line is 5 syllables, the second line is 7, and the third line is back to 5. Give it a try and post yours in the comments.
