NaPoWriMo April 10 Haiku catchup 1 (of 12)

April 22, 2013

napo2013buttonI am back from the Lake District and it was great.  However, what gnawed at me was I was falling way, way behind on NaPoWriMo.  I had no wireless access.  This impacted on my motivation to write.  Plus, there are always everyday reasons not to find time to write.  Charles Bukowski sums it up neatly, if not a bit harshly in his poem ‘The Weak’.  I find this poem motivating.  So in order to catch up I set myself the task of writing a haiku every hour over a twelve hour period.  Now when I say haiku, they follow the convention of three lines of five, seven and five syllables.  Having said that the quality if variable but unless generously read, unlikely to meet the BHS standard!  The twelve hours incorporated a Friday, a couple on the Saturday and the last one on Sunday morning.  So I’ll set them out, one on each day in order to catch up.  Is this cheating?  I don’t know, but I’ll feel better for having caught up.
