poetry form week 49, free verse

Random thoughts that run through my mind...
Who made up the word chimed?
I often ponder where the names of things come from...
Like who named the thumb?
Who decided the unintelligent were dumb?
Who was the first person to say shit & coined it a bad word?
Some objects names are quite absurd
Who had the power to say “now this thing is a definitely a pillow”
then sat under a tree & called it a weeping willow
I could go on & on about things I don’t understand....

PS: a free verse is a free flow of thoughts that pazzle you, yet those things sit
as facts which make life accessible

poetry form week 48, humor week 49

The best-known Japanese haiku[12] is perhaps Bashō's "old pond":
        furu ike ya kawazu tobikomu mizu no oto

This separates into on as:
fu-ru-i-ke ya (5)
ka-wa-zu to-bi-ko-mu (7)
mi-zu-no-o-to (5)

Translated haiku sample (syllabus 5 7 5 )
the first cold shower
even the monkey seems to want
a little coat of straw
