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.
