Six Takes on ‘News’


 

naked in the grass
we lay until the news came—
runaway blue kite
 
~~~ ~~~ ~~~
 
I’ve known no sorrow
worthy of being printed
in the morning news.
 
~~~ ~~~ ~~~
 
sweetening the air
news of the old man’s demise
no more cruelties
 
~~~ ~~~ ~~~
 
the end of winter—
good news to eager sowers
waiting with fresh seeds
 
~~~ ~~~ ~~~
 
Even the roadblocks
can’t keep news from travelling
village to village.
 
~~~ ~~~ ~~~
 
In moments like these
no one cares about the news—
a fresh grizzly track.

  1. yes, you are right… There is no sorrow worth being printed in the morning news. Another nice Haiku series here.

  2. FANTASTIC haiku. Wowzers!

  3. Oh, these are great! 1, 4, 5, and 6 are my favorites. 🙂

  4. Wow, what an amazing way to end this~ Well Done!

  5. the end of winter—
    good news to eager sowers
    waiting with fresh seeds

    So easy to see the farmer and his wife waiting…and then plunging headlong into the field to cast the seeds on the spring breeze!

  6. I love this haiku series… roadblocks (not) blocking the news, that’s inspirational! Enjoy the weekend!

  7. this morning you have me imaging a newspaper all written in haiku!
    something you are truly capable of!

  8. Wow. You blew me away this morning. Talk about following a theme. The grizzly bear was especially effective.

  9. What a fabulous collection!
    My favorite must be this one:
    I’ve known no sorrow
    worthy of being printed
    in the morning news.

    That’s just perfect….♥♥♥

  10. Hi MMT! I am so impressed and amazed at all these takes on the word ‘news.’ And, each haiku is so unique too! Really great post 🙂

    Each haiku is amazing, but I’m especially taken with: I’ve known no sorrow
    worthy of being printed
    in the morning news. Thank God I can say that, too.

  12. wow! i have a difficult time writing one haiku every few weeks while you offer so many spectacular images.
