Day 27 ~ The Last of Forms! (For this April)
Every time I tell my high school students that we are writing poetry in English class, they beg me to make it a Haiku. In their heads the haiku is the easiest of the forms because, a haiku s only 17 measly syllables. But a great haiku is so much more. Haiku take a moment, and make it poignant, possibly even more beautiful then it originally was.
The actual definition of an Haiku: An unrhymed Japanese poem recording the essence of a moment. Nature is combined with human nature. It usually consists of three lines of 5 syllables/7 syllables/5 syllables.
So as you gathered, today’s prompt is to write a Haiku, but there has to be a catch, and the catch is simple, you must write 3 haikus that are linked together. How you link them is up to you. Just link them together. Like this little ditty from Mark Stivers
