Recycled Blog Posts - All my Haikus

Recycled Blog Posts - All my Haikus

These are really not great - but I wanted to save these from my old blog that is closing down.  Here are all my old haikus...probably nothing great - but hey - I wrote them.  So why not save them.  They were written primarily between May and July 2008 when I was trying to write a haiku a day.  I got thirty - so if you do the math, you will see...well, please do not do the math.  In retrospect - some of these are not bad...emphasis on "not bad."

Now that I am more interested in fiction writing, I want to make sure that I save these.  You be the judge...enjoy!
