Haikus | Alicia Haun

Haikus about haikus:

Counting syllables,

Feeling the words flow through the

Tips of my fingers

***

Question for haikus:

Are titles cheating? Extra 

Syllables for free?

***

How much can you say 

in seventeen syllables? 

I guess we’ll find out.

Other:

Taking his approach:

Learning to be kind even

When I am hurting.

***

Michiganders. Why 

Do you tease people who just

Enjoy being warm?

***

You know when you pluck

Your eyebrows and suddenly 

They don’t look the same?

***

How did this happen?

Sleeping in my own bed feels

Like I’m missing you.

***

Romanticizing

Even the immediate

Past. Things keep changing.

***

Can’t sleep, so I blast

My eyes with the blue light from

My phone. Still can’t sleep.

***

Underestimate

The walk to the Union? Run

To your next zoom call.
