Alice’s Haiku (Parts I through IV)

Alices Haiku

I don’t write poetry often. But tonight I had haiku and tea with some friends.

There were four of us. We sat on a porch and the others started writing silently. Let me tell you it was exciting. But I had nothing. I looked around and found inspiration looking right at me.

So I wrote a series of four haiku. My friends liked them, so here they are:

Alice's Haiku
Alice’s Haiku

Part I
Alice is staring.
What the hell does she want?
The same things I want.

Part II
Alice, by the way,
Is a dog, I should have said
In the first poem.

Part III
That one small detail
Makes a difference, I think,
In how you take it.

Part IV
What I’m saying is:
Apes like us, and dogs like her…
I think you get it.

    Poet Ted embarks
    with verbal efficiency
    upon his journey.
