In The Night



WE WRITE POEMS
asks us to write a PICU, something even shorter than a haiku!

3/1/4 syllables!

IN THE NIGHT!

In the night,
Wake!
Is that a sound?

What a fright!
Shake!
Hear my heart pound!

In the light,
Fake!
Nothing around!

THE HAZ BEAN!
(A Nonsense Poem)

A jelly-bean fell in a birdie's nest
Among the eggs of Spring.
And the birdie said, not being impressed,
'What's this queer little thing?'
Nevertheless, she sat on it,
Her instincts to the fore.
When the jelly-bean melted
She certainly felt it!
She wont do that any more!

Wow! Proper serious pikus! Mine are mocking, so I really admire yours. And I love the Haz Bean!

Very clever! I like the subtle shifts in the lines. Here's to the Piku dance. :)

Clever set of pikus. With all the fine examples I am reading I may have to try again. Your pikus dance and shift the reader along.

I like your piku! It's amazing how our minds play with us when the lights are out.

I love what you did with the pikus - they tell a story.
