I am not much of a poet, but since writing a poem is on my bucket list – here it goes…
“My head hurts today,
as l look out the window,
I am on a train”
So, a haiku is a traditional form of Japanese poetry. A haiku consist of only three lines. The first and last lines of a haiku have five syllables and the middle line has seven syllables. Thank God these lines rarely rhyme. I read that the secret to writing great haiku is to be observant and appreciate nature. A haiku is meant to use just a few words – so perfect for myself. The haiku is also meant to capture a moment and create a picture in the reader’s mind. I read that it is meant to be “like a tiny window into a scene much larger than itself”.
Hope my little haiku does all the above.
