mind adventures

an experimental theatre company set up in sri lanka in 1999.

saucy haiku

i have now run out of things to tell you about 'in camera' for a while. the cast is chosen, the venue is barefoot, and the dates are around 17 – 20 may. it's a play reading, please to remember. we've met up and had our initial reading, but things are at a halt now while akhry works out our non-existent budget details. also, nimmi is out of the country.

in the meantime, if you can tear yourself away from the shennanigans of our resident farty farterssen, you might like to try some of this.

haiku is traditional japanese poetry and has long been a wee hobby of mine.

here's one i made earlier 🙂

he sucked her toes and

called them cherries

she grew roots and said

climb higher

 …er, yes, not your traditional haiku at all but then again, experimeting is the key to having a lot more fun.

and you have to mention Nature in some way…you know, weather, harvest, whatever…

Daytripper,
Uh, subject matter doesn’t really matter, does it? Perhaps the old haikus happened to be centered around these themes. It’s not a necessity though. The 5-7-5 and title rule is the only standard. 🙂

i like that. and mahangu, yes it is part of older haiku tradition, but i guess you can leave it out. it's half the fun though.
