Zappai

Here it is! The final A-Z Challenge post! I fucking did it!!!!

Zappai poems are like haiku; they have a 5-7-5 syllable pattern but do not contain the seasonal reference expected of haiku.

In other words, zappai are all those haiku people write that haiku poets recognize as not being haiku. In fact, I’d say most of the “haiku” I’ve written over the years have actually been zappai. Go figure…learned something today!

The End

I walk to the end,
realizing it circles back,
and sigh, audibly.
