Deficit of being haiku with tanka

August 10, 2017

 

 

It’s in the mirror

A deficit of being

What I am seeing

 

Learn new words do i

To consolidate my speech

Best communicate

 

The looks I must get

As if though three heads have I

Adds to the regret

 

To open my mouth

Lets out ridiculousness

Hard to decipher

 

Once used cognizant

When it seemed appropriate

All heard, turned and groaned

 

 

Much to my chagrin

Ooh, look at Mr. Big words

Fine, will keep mouth shut

 

 

Guess I’ll use newspeak

Say double plus good aware

Think that might just work

For the knuckle heads to hear

Ooops, did not mean to be mean

 

Would speak from the heart

If I actually had one

See my dilemma

 

Am deaf in one ear

Can’t hear out of the other

What is it you said

 

 

Besides my hearing

It’s my poor listening skills

Can not comprehend

 

 

Some use emotions

It’s that I don’t understand

There’s no hope for me

 

 

Is there hope for me

It does not seem like there is

Save mirror be gone

 

 

Don’t know haiku rules

If contractions are okay

It seems like cheating

 

 

A tanka to close

Just read the definition

From dictionary

Maybe I just need to write

Let others respond to that
