Dimpled fingers soft as silk
Held now in my heart
Haiku is a type of poetry from the Japanese culture. Haiku combines form, content, and language in a meaningful, yet compact form. Haiku poems are about everyday things. Many themes include nature, feelings, or experiences. Haiku doesn't rhyme. A Haiku must "paint" a mental image in the reader's mind. This is the challenge of Haiku - to put the poem's meaning and imagery in the reader's mind in ONLY 17 syllables over just three lines of poetry!
Here's the challenge… create a Haiku about something you see, experience or feel in the next few days. Share it under the comments and I’ll choose my favorite to post next week!!!
