All That Money Wants: Haiku for You

Haiku gets my creative juices flowing. A fan of short and sweet, the form takes me off the hook of writing past the point where I wonder whether the reader loses interest. 5.7.5 is safe. Reflecting on nature is a traditional theme in Haiku, and I try whenever I can to get a little bit of the green stuff in there. A great book for guidelines is described here. Without further ado, words about wealth.

Color of envy
I watch a grasshopper land
wealth beyond measure


I once saw a coin
copper instead of silver
semantics of wealth


A garden of wealth
can be a field of flowers
or a crown of thorns
