I’m so excited. And I just can’t hide it. I’m about to loose control… Sing with me!!
Okay, so here in my own little world I decided to challenge myself to a writing challenge. (sounds very desperate, I know. Don’t care). Because I want to write and I love it. I’ll be using pictures / illustrations as writing prompts. I bumped into Haiku and thought I’d like to give it a try. Stretch my brain a bit.
For those, like me, who didn’t know what Haiku is:
Haiku is a form of Japanese poetry in which an idea is expressed in just 17 syllables. The format of these syllables is: line one is five syllables, line two is seven syllables, and line three is five syllables. Traditional Japanese haiku usually describes ideas that have to do with nature or the different seasons. As haiku has spread across the nations, the content of this poetry has broadened, but the format remains the same: 5-7-5.
Please see the pic. This is my first ever attempt at Haiku. Ladies and gents I give you…… (okay let me admit – I didn’t think of a proper name yet. OMW):
The call came sudden
A tyre burst, things looked bad
The wedding’s at noon
(Edited. In my excitement, I forgot how to count. My 1st attempt had 7 syllables instead of 5 in the third line. 🤫)
