Five haiku about octopus

by Paganini Jones

it is difficult
to animate octopus.
all those suckered legs


an octopus kite
doesn't look quite right
in flight.
too bright


eight arms, no hands
a beak, no wings or song
black ink, no script


Octopus sliced,
fried with potatoes and garlic
is nice
in Spain


the octopus has
lots of legs.
I don't.
I'm dead again



Author's Note:
Yes. I know. They aren't real haiku. So what ARE they?

Gotta agree with Lori on these haiku. Well, if they are 17 syllables they may count as haiku. That debate is neverending!

I am not sure but I like them. They inspired me to write one. Let me know what you think.
