Confession Time: Somedays--many days--I am not in "the mood" to be poetic. Today's prompt is exactly perfect for one of those days. (Can't take credit for it, this was Cindy's idea.) Here goes:
Poetry Challenge #8
How Many Haiku?
Haiku is a traditional form of Japanese poetry made up of 3 lines with 5/7/5 syllables on each line. Traditional haiku has something to do with nature, but you can write them about anything.
A poet friend of mine mentioned the fact that the first three lines of the song “Moonlight in Vermont” make a perfect haiku. If you know the song (or at least the tune), you can write haiku very quickly by putting your own words to the tune.
How many haiku can you write in 7 minutes? Are you ready?
Set the timer for 7 minutes.
Don’t think about it too much; just do it.
And, if you do join us in the 7-Minute Poetry Challenge be sure to let us know by posting the title, a note, or if you want, the whole dang poem, in the comments!
