Bumped: Zen Poetry Slam

Filed under: Treats — posted by Chris @ 8:56 am

This can be a stressful week. Single people worried they will die alone. Couples worried they will die alone if they do the wrong thing on Valentine’s Day. Here at BGHQ we try to be zen about it — or as close to zen as we can get while still stressed out: we write HAIKUS! In honor of our past Valentine’s Haiku Contests, we’re opening up a post for readers to submit their best relationship-themed haikus in the comments! To illustrate the 5-7-5 syllable scheme, here’s one of our faves:

Am I over her?
Why, did she ask about me?
Hey wait, come back here!

–Brian Thomas

  1. Hope, Change; Yes, we can;
    If we can elect “that one”
    Then I can find love.

    Comment by BG — February 11, 2009 @ 9:41 am

  2. Just once, I would like
    to get that “I’m sorry” call
    BEFORE I dump you.

    Comment by AmyK — February 11, 2009 @ 10:32 am

  3. Facebook tells me that
    You are single now! I guess
    We’re *not* on a break?

    Comment by AmyK — February 11, 2009 @ 10:40 am

  4. Love, like Oreos,
    Goes from dark to light and back.
    Crummy? Yes. But sweet…

    Comment by Wrong-Way Corrigan — February 11, 2009 @ 10:47 am

  5. Inspired by my trip to the store yesterday:

    Choclates are on sale.
    They’re two for the price of one.
    Cheaters love this deal.

    Comment by Karl R — February 11, 2009 @ 12:52 pm

  6. Roses, hearts, choc’late,
    Valentine’s Day: the horror!
    Love-pocalypse, now.

    Comment by Daniel — February 11, 2009 @ 12:59 pm

  7. Like the recession?
    That’s not what our love is like.
    Maybe your hairline.

    Comment by Asher — February 11, 2009 @ 2:04 pm

  8. [...] Haikus too wordy? How about capturing a relationship in just six words? That’s the premise behind Six-Word Memoirs on Love and Heartbreak: by Writers Famous and Obscure, an adorable little compendium of love and loss featuring our own famous author, Lynn Harris. [...]

  12. frankly she hoped for
    something more romantic than
    “My Cousin Vinny”

    Comment by Thomas Heald, BreakupGirl Haiku Legend — February 14, 2009 @ 2:13 pm

  13. I had an Aries
    After always wanting one.
    Don’t need love no more!

    Comment by Robert Patrick — February 14, 2009 @ 3:39 pm

  14. It’s finally here!
    The Day I’ve been waiting for!
    Pitchers and Catchers!

    Comment by Colin — February 14, 2009 @ 5:48 pm

  15. Each time I see her
    Beauty before me I say,
    “Paper or plastic?”

    Comment by Monkey Love Robot — February 14, 2009 @ 5:50 pm

    Kaylee, Penny, Fred, Saffron,
    Evil Willow, Kate Lockley.

  17. I hate writing poems
    But if I win this contest
    Will there be a prize?

    Comment by Monkey Love Robot — February 14, 2009 @ 7:31 pm

  18. Monkey Love Robot:
    Fame, honor, adulation —
    Prizes worth having.

    Comment by Daphne B. — February 15, 2009 @ 11:01 am

  19. Yes Daphne, it’s true:
    All that fancy stuff is nice.
    Cash sweetens the pot!

    Comment by Monkey Love Robot — February 18, 2009 @ 10:10 pm

  20. Rough and calloused hands,
    soothing to fearful nightmares,
    calmly, I sleep on.

    Comment by Jules — February 19, 2009 @ 3:40 am

  21. So…

    Was there anyone
    Worthy of the fame, honor,
    And adulation?

    Comment by Monkey Love Robot — February 25, 2009 @ 1:47 am

  22. Exposed to the flame
    Slipping but not tripping yet
    Waiting undaunted.

    Comment by Mike — December 22, 2009 @ 5:07 pm

  23. A first love, first hurt!
    I make myself happy first,
    Not just upon him.

    Comment by Leena — February 10, 2010 @ 12:11 pm

  24. Valentine’s Day is
    not for me, lest I forget
    the rest of the year.
