as a haiku-ist, this appealed to me… this is art, innit!

i was inspired by

….Aram Saroyan’s Electric Poems, first published in 1972. Saroyan is known for his minimalist poetry. Often, his poems consist of re-mixed/chopped versions of a single word. In fact, one of his most famous one-word poems engendered some controversy in the U.S. Congress!

 

and so I didn’t to this….

 

Day 16:- Rather than encouraging minimalism, today we challenge you to write a poem of over-the-top compliments. Pick a person, place, or thing you love, and praise it in the most effusive way you can. Go for broke with metaphors, similes, and more. Need a little inspiration? Perhaps you’ll find it in the lyrics of Cole Porter’s “You’re The Top.” (Scroll down at the link for the lyrics and an annotated explanation of them).

Where

Do the artists go

You cut their last artery

To protect business.

.

Haiku

.

As usual

Governments set up funds to protect businesses in this trying time. What about the artists. We have to eat too! And without us, what is any of this worth?

Imagine a life without colour, style, music, creativity , laughter, stories, beauty. Imagine without imagination, for that is art too

sculpture’s me

the stone informs me

when it’s done, the shape shifts.

violence completes me

me

shifts

me

A Haiku-o is a haiku whose first or last lines, or both form a micro poem. The form was perhaps invented by Christopher Perry or perhaps has existed way before he mentioned it to me. We named it Haiku-o. O means tail in Japanese.
