Guest Submission – “To Alexander Michael Burgoyne”

Haiku

I just wanted everyone to know that I know that I don’t write “correct” haiku. Also, I don’t care.

This is a page that links to lots of other pages about haiku.

This is a blog post by a violinist full of MUSIC HAIKU. She does write (multiple) haiku with an “s,” but whatever.

SOON TO COME: informative haiku post. Super interesting (not boring). Get excited.

FEEDBACK REQUESTED. ALSO, Tell Me What You’d Like to Hear, Honey.

 

Perhaps you’ve had an idea for a haiku, or a series of haiku but haven’t had the time/energy/patience/wherewithal/desire to post one yourself. Well let me know and maybe I’ll write or collaborate with some of my cohorts on a new project.

If you’d like to submit your own haiku (singular and/or plural) click “Submit” or click HERE. If you’d like to see other submissions click “Friend(‘)s” or click HERE.

Writing Haiku AND Understanding the Sonic Bonus Level That is My Brain

To write haiku is
for me to delve to the deep
darkness in my brain,

and find the truest
and most reliable thought
and shove it into

some sort of semblance
of seventeen characters
that represent one.

Writing Haiku AND Understanding the Sonic Bonus Level That is My Brain

Update OR Dan DiPiero and I Plan a Special Haiku Event OR Frank Illustrates My Brain

I don’t generally do this sort of thing but I wanted to update you on some exciting things that are abound.

The “Friend(‘)s” page is up and running with an archive of all the guest submissions (we have 2!). Feel free to go to the “Guest Submissions” page at any time and submit a haiku or two (<- rhyme) anonymously or otherwise. This is exciting.

Additionally, Aaron Quinn (also @ BusTown) wrote a (couple of?) piece(s) based on my haiku (and one non-haiku). He is guitarist/new music composer/husband (WHOA!)/friend/ and despite his best efforts otherwise, a super rad guy based in Columbus (but probably not forever). Check out his stuff! More to come on this.

Also, Dan DiPiero and I are planning a series of haiku WITH ILLUSTRATION soon. He is a drummer/new music composer/illustrator/food connoisseur/and author  based in the quasi Los Angeles (Cal Arts) area but FROM Cleveland, whom I met in Columbus and hopefully someday soon back in the midwest.  I’m not sure what this will be exactly but I’m thinking of calling it “People and Me and People” or something. Get excited and check him out too. I’ve been meaning to collaborate with him for a long time and it should be an exciting venture. More to come on this TOO.

Thank you for reading. Any day I get more than 3 readers I feel lucky and strange. SUBMIT SOMETHING. Loves.
