Haiku 1

golden color rains
crackles and breaks under shoes
spills dry, lifeless blood

KT Workman grew up in the rural South without the benefit of cell phones or the Internet, a time and place that has heavily influenced her writing. To this day, when she puts pen to paper—or fingers to keyboard—nine times out of ten her mind veers south onto that old, familiar road. It goes home. KT resides in Arkansas where she writes a wide variety of gothic and speculative fiction, poetry, and dabbles in watercolor painting and amateur photography.

  1. I wonder who thought up this form of writing! I know it is from Japan, but ….
    Yours are always so “open to interpretation “ in their makeup. Lovely.

  2. The depth found in the poetic forms, that you claim are new to you, show a talent beyond your experience. I know it doesn’t come as easy as your free verse, but the finished product is well worth the effort, Kat.

    1. Thanks, J. No, it doesn’t come as easily, but I do enjoy working with the words to make them fit within a set confine.
      I miss your writing. Whether on your current blog, or the previous one, I always enjoyed reading your work. 💙

  3. I remember when I first tried Haiku. I really liked it and preferred it to other forms. Until my Instructor began to explain all the rules and “proper” procedures that are related to it. For the most part, I continued to do it “my” way, lol. I like your words, they draw a very clear image with developed sense imagery as well.
