366 Erotic Haiku & Senryu

tumblr_m3grtaj6vy1qfbon7o1_500Knowing when I started, I was confused that my numbering didn’t add up.

I knew that March 1st should have been my 366th haiku. As it turns out, I had ‘mis-numbered’ two of my posts. I went back, this evening, and corrected them. Last night’s was truly and correctly my 366th haiku.

Throw me a party!

If I’ve done nothing else in my life then it can be said that I, William Crimson, wrote the first year-long cycle (a leap year no less!) of erotic haiku—ever—since the beginning of humankind, the world, the universe. I may not have been the first to step on the moon, but I was the first to celebrate each night, something that makes us wonderfully human.

And I’m all wrung out.

Time to get back to work on the Daydreams & Distractions—my 101 erotic poems, haiku and short stories. I’ve also had requests for more in the Hitwoman Series and another chapter in my story The Orc Anar. I’ll try to do a little of each, and some new stories, but my nightly erotic haiku are over.

I hope you’ve enjoyed them.

I’ll be gathering them all up in an eBook soon.

    I’m more than a little sad it’s done and over –and yet I understand the feeling of the grind of it, too. I once wrote daily for 18 months, I think it was. It’s a challenge and can be an amazing catalyst for growth, but yes, the grind can wear you down, wring you dry. Just like a surfeit of orgasms, eventually one needs must stop, breathe, explore new boundaries, and push them some.

    I will miss my nightly read just before drifting off to sleep, however. :(

    You’ve touched many things, dear friend…none the least my imagination and my deep and abiding gratitude for being friends with the great writer of erotica that you are. It’s a small and rare world we’re in. You’ve made a lovely thing here, Will.

    Thanks!…where’s the champagne? Here’s my party toast, of course in haiku form:

    Erotic writer
    painter of a hundred tales
    my cup is full

      Now maybe I can get to sleep at a reasonable hour. =) And such a sweet little poem you’ve written. A party with my best friends!

      And you wrote daily for 18 months? Well then, you’ve had your share. I haven’t written for 18 months, but can I join you in your clubhouse of grizzled and wrung-out authors? I’ll make sure to bring along my five day shadow.

    Oh, I’ll really miss my daily inspiration. What would you say if I’ll translate some of your works in Romanian? :)

      I would love it and I would be dangerously flattered. :) Be sure and send me a link so I can check it out.

      Please contact me by e-mail, I have an idea :)

    Speaking of Romania, as Lucian does, I learned what was presented as a Romanian joke last night:

    “What’s the difference between a kitten and a ball of string?
    “When you put them both at the base of a tree, the kitten will climb the tree.”

    — from the first episode of “Fortunes of War” (1987).

    So, this doesn’t really have a lot to do with your first-ever year of erotic haiku, but congratulations! You definitely climbed the tree (although I’m pretty sure the analogy fails after that).

      That’s a joke? Sounds more like a proverb, of which there are many thousands in English — and many forgotten. I might add to that proverb the following:

      “What’s the difference between a ball of string and a kitten in the tree?”
      “You don’t have to climb the tree for a ball of string.”

      And thank you for your congratulations. I’m back at my desk putting together all the erotic haiku into an ebook, editing and re-ordering them as I go. :)
