When I woke up this morning I had never written a haiku poem in my life. But mum needed haiku help, so we googled a little to work out the rules and then haiku-d our hearts out. I’m now hooked on haiku-ing. It’s quite possible I’ll be counting syllables in my dreams from now on.
The poems I’m writing aren’t really haiku (there are no references to seasons, no profound final line) – 'fake-u' may be a more appropriate name.
True haiku masters
would cringe at these first attempts,
but I’m having fun!
Anywho, my haiku-induced happiness has given me an idea for this blog but you’ll have to tune back in on Wednesday to find out what it is...
(Ooooooh, the suspense!)
P.S. The picture's from here.
P.P.S. I was originally looking for a picture of a koi fish to stick to the Japanese-y theme, which reminded me of this (crazy?) woman.
