Into Haikus?


Is anyone out there into Haikus? A haiku is a Japanese poem made up of three lines. The first line consists of five syllables; the second line, seven syllables, and the third line five syllables. Each line relates to the other to depict a statement of some kind. For instance, here’s one I wrote a few years ago after tasting red snapper for the first time.

Dinner was superb

Red snapper on the menu,

Tasty on the tongue.

And here’s one I wrote yesterday after being hacked.

The happy hacker

Is missing his common sense

What a nincompoop!

I find it fun and brain teasing to come up with these little three liners. I’d love if someone would send me one of their haikus.

Happy Saturday.
