one month, thirty days
seventeen syllable rut
ready for a change

Happy end of National Poetry Month! Matt has this week's Poetry Friday roundup at Radio, Rhythm & Rhyme.



  1. Congratulations on posting every day, Mary Lee. It's been hard to keep up this week, but I've enjoyed all your haiku. Looking forward to finding out what your next adventure will be!

  2. I've really enjoyed these all month! Thank you!

  3. I'm looking forward to some new kind of writing, too, but I want to tell you that I've loved all thirty of those 'seventeen syllables'! Have a great weekend, Mary Lee.

  4. Ha! I've so enjoyed your haiku this month. Glad you get a rest. But, I might be in withdrawl.

  5. Hahaha. I feel you. As much as I adore equation poems, I am tapped out.

  6. I've loved reading these! You blew me away, again and again, with how much big thinking and how much truth you could pack into seventeen syllables. Thank you!

    And should I admit that one of the first things that popped into my head this morning, after waking, was, "I don't have to write a poem today!"

  7. Ah, and what comes next… thanks for your month of haiku's!

  8. I thoroughly enjoyed your honed haiku craft this month, Mary Lee. The poignancy of your poems transcend their size/syllable count.
    I sort of wish I picked only one form and improved my craft over the month rather than trying 30 different forms, but at the same time, I discovered some new forms I wouldn't have otherwise, so there's that.
    Loved being a reader of your NPM brilliance. Thank you! :)

  9. HAH! That's honestly about right.
