The first in a short series of short-form poetry…
Morning. I thought it was high time I put some of my poetry up here so today is the shortest form, working upwards (next week is fibonacci).
http://examples.yourdictionary.com/what-are-different-types-of-poems.html is a great list of poetry forms and says of Haiku…
Haiku is a Japanese form of poetry which is composed of three non-rhyming lines. The first and third lines have five syllables each and the second line has seven syllables. They often express feelings and thoughts about nature; however, you could write a poem about any subject that you would like to in this form. Perhaps the most famous Haiku is Basho’s Old Pond: Furuike ya kawazu tobikomu mizu no oto Translated, this poem reads: The old pond– a frog jumps in, sound of water.
Below are some of mine. If you’d like to share yours, please add in the comments box. Thank you!
