My response to the National Poetry Writing Month Day 4 prompt “Books by Scottish science fiction writer Iain M. Banks make use of spaceships with odd poetic names. Write a poem with a title such as his spaceships have or might have” on NaPoWriMo—April 2013. Please note: my best to you Mr. Banks, even in dark humor days—with aloha. 

Of course haiku rarely if ever have a title (unless of course you are breaking with that thinking and title your haiku). In keeping with exploration, and the spirit of a prompt, I’ve made an exception and created a title I believe might be found on an Iain M. Banks’ spaceship—or at least one that might have been briefly considered and then discarded. 

Etegami is the Japanese Folk Art of writing (which can be haiku but does not have to be haiku) and drawing (with or without color), intended to be sent between friends through a postal service, often as a postcard (although it does not have to be a postcard either). 

This work is now available as a postcard in packets of eight on my 19 Planets Cafepress shop.

Be fun—Write Haiku or other Poetry every day in April – Aloha
