Haiku is a very short form of Japanese poetry. Typically it has 3 ‘lines’ of 5, 7 and 5 syllables. The challenge is to write something that captures an intense feeling or image.
I was sitting on the bus the other day heading to college for a lecture and there was a young girl having one of those one-sided conversations. And then I realised that she was a new student…….
Loudly, she tells of food she has bought for her meal, And then she crumples
After our lovely summer, it has been raining in earnest so
We needed the rain, But around the house the washing Flops like limp damp flags
And then we had a walk down at Mudeford on a busy Sunday. It is a very popular place for ‘crabbing’; the most successful ‘crabbers’ use smoked bacon as bait tied in little net bags.
