Ice water flows through
Like a mighty march of men
Chills me to the bone
OK, so this isn’t my first rodeo at doing haiku or poetry for that matter, but Writing 201 serves as a way to refocus my writing of poetry, and now of course, I have learned I’ve been doing haikus basically all wrong in the recent past, not paying attention to the 5/7/5 syllable format (if that is what is said in the official poetry handbook, if there is one). Oh, well. We all learn eventually.
Basically, my haiku describes the term “ice water in your veins”, to have no fear, no pressure, to be calm, cool, and collected. A more creative interpretation could be using the haiku to describe the drain in the picture, its “bone” being the metal.
