Bonus Post for a Monday: International Haiku Poetry Day

I rarely post twice in one day, but I am making an exception today.  After posting this morning, I learned that today is International Haiku Poetry Day.  I loved Haiku poetry as a kid.  I still love it as an adult.  It has structure--a structure that, in my opinion, encourages both brevity and creativity.

In honor of this special day, I wrote a personal haiku for my Facebook page.

Yoga feeds the soul
And calms the body and mind.
Breathe and move. Repeat.

I am pretty proud of that one, inspired by my Monday night Iyengar practice.  So, I thought I would try my hand at a BLPB haiku.  Here goes.

A new President.
Time to revamp business regs!
Uncertainty reigns.

The inspiration for this haiku is obvious . . . .  :>)

Prefer more humorous verse? I also loved limericks.  So, I checked to see whether there might be an International or National Limerick Day.  Indeed, it appears that we will celebrate limericks on Friday, May 12, 2017.  Hmm . . . .

Here is my five minutes worth of effort!
Insurance for all
Is a difficult prospect
For some, without depth.
Read it how you will! M.

Haha, Marcos! Very good. I am amused by the phrase after the comma, however it may be read . . . .
