Writing Prompt Pit Stop: PoMoSco # 11 Haiku Anew

Welcome to Writing Prompt Pit Stop! On the 11th day of the PoMoSco project we’re supposed to find a haiku and “Remix” it into our own. We could take one, or several. I chose to take one of Jack Kerouacs haikus and work with it. Here is my poem, “Abandoned.” You will see that I got two haiku’s out of it…taking some liberty with a few added words.

Here is the Day 11 prompt, Haiku Anew:

Start by selecting a haiku (or a few) written by another poet. Visit the Haiku Discomobulator at http://www.languageisavirus.com/haiku-discombobulater.html, enter your source haiku, and click “Discombobulate!”

Craft a new haiku (or series of haiku) from the resulting text, using the results in any order you choose. Note: you may need to intervene in the resulting text to create a poem that fits the haiku structure while still making sense.

Literary journals like Frogpond (http://www.hsa-haiku.org/frogpond/), Acorn (http://acornhaiku.com/) and Bones (http://www.bonesjournal.com/index.html)  publish haiku — start there if you’re having trouble finding your starting “source” haiku.
