Brain folds

The ancient eavesdropper

Brain folds

My brain folds
in and out like
an origami crane
flying away
with me.

    A wonderment! May I try my hand at creating a haiku that more or less encapsulates the poem as I see it? — Ron —

    • Thank you, Ron! I’m glad you enjoyed it, my friend πŸ™‚ Sure, go right ahead. May we be endlessly inspired, our poems marching infinitely like M.C. Escher’s ants on a Mobius Strip.

        Thanks, Tyler! I’ll take a shot at it. Love the Moebius strip reference in your reply. In college I messed around with those endlessly when I wasn’t memorizing the digits of pi (100 when I finally got tired and quit! *g*)

        Well, I tried to “haikunize” your poem for an hour or so and…gave up! Just couldn’t get satisfied that I had done anything except create a mishmash hybrid with no redeeming literary value. Oh well, such is life in the fast lane. *g* Thanks for letting me try! — Ron —

      • No problem, Ron. Thank you for trying, my friend. I have yet to write a haiku, so you’re ahead of the curve with your formulaic words πŸ˜‰

        Tyler, if you’d like to give haiku a try, I have an 8-installment series on “Introduction to Writing Haiku” that I wrote and posted lasted year. Here’s the shortlink:

        Let me know if you have any questions! πŸ™‚

    Folds itself outward

    • Awesome job, Pieter! I like the idea of re-formatting a poem to a different style of poetry. It’s not unlike concrete poetry, only more succinct. Thank you for sharing, my friend. I’ll have to try my hand at these haikus. You’ve piqued my curiosity.

    oh well.. second sentence is not haiku-certified i see.. only 6 instead of 7 πŸ™‚
    lets make it into.. euh…

    A live origami crane

  5. why can’t I find a like button on some of your posts? Sometimes I just like to quickly tell bloggers I like their post πŸ™‚
    so….I Like your poetry and photos

    • Thank you, my friend πŸ™‚ I really appreciate your support. Not sure why the like button has disappeared, but your kind words mean more to me. The fact that your took the time to comment is wonderful πŸ™‚ I am now following your blog and look forward to your posts. Have a great day!
