On a recent podcast, Gretchen Rubin recommended writing a haiku. Really caught my attention.
You know what’s coming next, don’t you?
Oh oh, you say? Correct.
Here are a couple that I just wrote.
Starting to Haiku
It will be super fun; you
Try too, no saaku
(who said it should all be in one language?)
Teen on her iPhone
Engrossed in what, I wonder
Best leave her alone
Ugh, dirty dishes
Calling out my name, oh no
Time to feed fishes
Ok, the last one is kinda petty, and just my immediate to do list. Still. You get the idea.
I am finding it quite tough to follow the 5 syllable – 7 syllable – 5 syllable rule. Not a lot of room there, forces you to be creative. Think I will rhyme the first and the last lines (for more fun).
I am liking this haiku-ing. Makes me focus with a lot more intention on things going on around me. Hmmm…. Think I will write at least a few haikus a day and publish them here.
Don’t go away, I’ll be right back. 😉
