The form of poetry called haiku is a three-line poem with a strict syllable structure. The first line is five syllables, the second line is seven, and the third line is five. I love haiku because it forces me to choose my words with great care. Haiku usually uses some aspect of nature as its topic. To play with it a bit, my prompt is to write a haiku that’s not based on nature. Here’s my inspiration:
The alarms erupts.
It’s still night, but I stagger
Into the school sprint.JPC Allen
I’d love to read your inspiration for a haiku that’s not based on nature in the comments.
Nice job! Here’s my thought….
Flip the calendar
New batteries in the watch
Always go forward.
Nice! Thanks for sharing your inspiration.
