I would like to see haiku in the voice of any of the following poets: Robert Bly, Tim Murphy, Sylvia Plath, Emily Dickinson or Walt Whitman.

These curdling greens
gnaw at the roots of a skull--
the pond, deafening.

The leaves of grass die
to the song of the body
electrically

The grass waves to everything alike,
singing a hymn in praise of all that startling beauty
with its own inimitable voice.


[Whitman in only 17 syllables? This might be a "haiku" more his size. ]

Bloody poppy mouths
Along the highway scatter
Silent screams in spring

One, two, three, four, five,
six, seven, spoons of coffee.
Too late for a peach.

Father kept his bees
And I practice suicide

Like debts, locusts swarm.
The farmer watches the storm
Foreclose on the farm.
