Haiku Bones

Haiku Bones is a brand-new weekly haiku meme, with prompts changing every Sunday, created by brother and sister haiku aficionados Bruce Miller and Nancy Bea Miller The meme address is:

The name Haiku Bones was coined by Bruce Miller; it comes from the idea that haiku are like flexible, respiring "bones" or structure, which support the poet's ideas. Both Haiku Bones creators believe that the haiku format (three lines, of approximately 5-7-5 syllables) is an admirable platform for this creative task.

Haiku Bones is a sort of drop-in haiku coffeehouse. We hope haiku poets will stop in to see what's on the weekly menu, visit their haiku friends, and join in if the prompt interests them. If you have any weekly prompt words you'd like to suggest, please send them in:

We hope you will enjoy this new opportunity to share the pleasures of haiku!
Many thanks,
Bruce Miller
