I have been doing a lot of writing lately and I wanted to practice a few different styles of writing to get myself out of my comfort zone. The other day I decided to write a Haiku Poem.
I love to challenge myself and learn new or old skills. I haven't written a Haiku since high school and I have been out of college for ten years! Yikes! So, I thought this would be a great challenge for me to practice an old skill - although it's been so long it felt like learning
a new skill.
The first thing I did was research, What is a Haiku poem?
In a nutshell, a Haiku is a very short form of Japanese poetry. Traditional Haiku's have these three qualities:
Here is the Haiku that I created:
A single flake falls
From the vibrant blue April sky
Winter is still here
What do you think? I am sure it's not perfect but this was my first attempt in a long time and I thought it was pretty good. I would love to hear your thoughts and any feedback you may have on my Haiku.
Additionally, If you have a haiku you want to share, post in the comments.
