Fall is in the Air! Yea!


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

  1. 3 lines
  2. 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!

*smooch*  😀

    I’ve always find it difficult to write haiku maybe because I’m a wordy person. But the simplicity in your haiku is tempting me to try!
