Welcome back to Hump Day Haiku! This is week 2. So surprised I’ve done it two weeks in a row. Ha! Won’t you play along?
Fall is in the air
From the cool breeze to tree leaves
To apple pie flair
Won’t you play along? The only rules to a haiku are
- 3 lines
- 5 syllables on the first line, 7 syllables on the second, 5 on the third. Not words, but syllables. It can rhyme or not.
A haiku is a short form of Japanese poetry. A haiku uses just a few words to capture a moment and create a picture in the reader’s mind. It is like a tiny window into a scene much larger than itself.
Hope y’all are doing awesome!
