I recently learned how to write haikus in my creative writing class.
Haikus are a kind of poetry originated from Japan. Traditionally, a haiku consists of 17 syllables in total, usually in the order of 5, 7, 5 syllables a line. This week, I practice to write 3 haikus following that rule. Here goes:
Caught in the Moment
He glanced; she looks up
Her eyes smiled, she says, “Hello!”
and the world stops spinning.
Gold rays fade to pink
Flowing. One, two foot flutters
to the finish line.
Honey and lemon
in steamed water turned green –
Which is your favorite? :)
