Day 26: Haiku

I began an elegy today, but had to leave it, it wasn’t going anywhere good quickly. So I resorted to stringing some on-the-spot haikus together. Hay (na) kus escape me as well, maybe on the last day of napowrimo I can pull together all the prompts I’ve missed, ie, a cento, an elegy, an epithalamion, hay(na)kus, a lullaby, etc lol.



The floating birds peck

At the water’s surface sheen

Dipping like my thoughts.


A plastic bagged beach

I collect cheap mementos

My arms flap, seagulls


Their eyes in my head

A wind-curved world of wet sand

Crossing, car park perch


I open my mouth

A screech falls from my lips, lands

By my strong webbed feet.
