An Artist Haikus*
Karen R. Kaplowitz
October 7, 2019


Haiku is a form of poetry that comes from the ancient Japanese and was adapted in the early 19th century by the English. The correct form is Haiku – singular.  For example, the art of Haiku. Never pluralize it.

It’s form is in 3 lines.  The first and last line must be 5 syllables.  The second line must be seven. The third line must be a twist or random funny thought generated by the serious setup of lines 1 and 2. 

*In this case, think of “Haikus” in the title as a verb meaning to write Haiku


Love a blank canvas
A world of inspiration
Submit some ideas.

Haiku is so hard
Don’t use fancy names for hues
Crayola names work.

I love pianos
Their tenor, tone and pedals.
Where is my lost snake?

Dust filters inside
The large loft filled with color
Any maids like paint?

Mine’s not appreciated
Bitcoins are the way.

Visual arts may
Show insight of the artist
Rembrandt? He my bae.*

​*This is What ‘          


‘ Means. … The short answer: Though this word was used in the 1500s to refer to

sheep sounds, today bae is used as a term of endearment, often referring to your boyfriend or girlfriend. Or perhaps a prospect who might one day hold such a lofty position.

An Artist Haikus  (continued)

A black and white life
May not be open to thought
Except sage zebras.

Rainbows fill with awe
Most people on the planet
My state’s are lethal.**

I will leave Haiku
To the masters of the art
Should stay in my lane.
