Genuine Telephone Haiku

I am on the bus,
I will be home at half six,
No not sausage, fish.

Some people do not realise that poetry does not have to be all about doom, death, gloom, wrenching emotions from within the inner sanctum of your deep dark vapid existence. Listen. I heard this one side telephone conversation on the bus but I am still taking all the credit.

  1. Isn’t it wonderfult that something so accidental could be turned into poetry! I think you can rightly take credit for it, as you transformed it. A special little haiku because of it’s story 🙂

  2. That’s the irony. I didn’t do anything. I just happened to have my ears open. I hope it makes you listen out for other one-sided telephone Haiku’s, I must admit whenever I hear a mobile phone ring on the bus or train now I start counting syllables.

    Glad you enjoyed.
