Haiku trio – an ode to the greats

Hi All,

Hope this post finds you well. In a homage to some of the great Haiku writers (and there are many I have seen on their wordpress blogs) I have below a trio of Haiku to some of my favourite and well know Haiku writers. A bit of light relief hopefully in troubling times.


I once asked Basho

Why he wrote all those haikus

He said Kerouac?

Hey Jack Kerouac

Why did you write your haikus?

For John Cooper Clarke?

Hey John Cooper-Clarke

Why do you write your haikus

Because it’s diffic?
