A series of Haikus

I don’t feel poetic

I don’t feel perfect

So how can I write a perfect poem?

Haiku is three lines

Just seventeen syllables

Five, seven, five

(in the most common

English interpretation)

Stop thinking! Just write.

I’m not a poet

I’m not a perfect being

Perfect poem, lost.

Poet, still seeking

Words for a perfect poem (while)

Wading through sewage



Sunflower looks down

As the moon rises


Words create a verse

Is one word a universe?

Stop! Explain yourself.

One word. Much meaning.

Is a universe one word?

Consider this: (a) child.


About the Creator

Jill Harper-Judd

I've been writing poetry and short stories since childhood....but my life has often been chaotic so (mental) space to write can be hard to find. I am a lover of words and the worlds we can create with them. I seek beauty in all things.
