1/ I took up burlesque A hook from the theatre wings Hauled me off the stage 2/. Having to go out In a cold Autumn downpour I still shower first 3/. Remembrance Sunday I still observe the silence Though Iā€™m here alone 4/. September fading Memory, dream, past, remote distant as childhood 5/. Clone War deserter The yellow side of the force Is strong with this one. Arthur Chappell

It is an act I keep trying to talk my burlesque friends into letting me do - me coming out starting to strip and being dragged off with hooks from the wings

@arthurchappell I enjoy your haikus especially number 4. I know that most likely writing many haikus is perhaps easier than writing poems however I have always stuck to poetry in its poetic free style form. Perhaps it's time to also consider a haiku or two.

they are fun to play with and not always as easy as they look

a literal translation is 'listen' but it is an amusing writing exercise originating in Feudal Japan, a short syllabic poetry exercise with a set 5,7,5 metre over three lines

I am loving these haikus! Oh my gosh, I was wondering what the Star Wars photo was for - Hubby and I had a good laugh with the last one!

It's much nicer to shower after coming in from the rain. Great haiku, as usual.
