I started writing Haiku as part of the 2016 planning for pleasure; with a focus on trying new things.
Haiku uses beautiful language to evoke moments of time and the feeling that you have the wisdom to understand the mysteries of the universe. I wouldn’t say I am very good at it yet, but I feel good enough to share with you. In the meantime, I’ll keep practising!
It’s a traditional form of Japanese poetry. In English, it’s represented by three lines of text. The first has five syllables, the second seven and the last five. All readable in a single breath.
