I was thinking about different possible post ideas and I came across the idea of writing a Haiku. I knew it was some type of a short poem, but I did not know exactly what a Haiku was. During my search for Haiku, I came across this website, Haiku Poetry, and was really intrigued by what a Haiku is I wanted to give it a shot and see how I do it for my very first Haiku. By the way, I do recommend looking at that website I found, it gives you a brief explanation, not too long, of what a Haiku is, and of course, it provides a lot of examples. So, without further ado, please take a look at my first Haiku.
My life is frozen in Time,
Yet all is constant.
This was a lot tougher than it looks. I probably did way too much thinking about the word choices and it’s possible that my Haiku did not come out, all that naturally. I was overthinking, trying to get the right words that had the right breath for each of the three lines for what I thought I wanted to say. Not sure how I did, but I guess with any kind of poetry, you really cannot go wrong – right. Here is another example.
Anyways I do appreciate that you stopped by to check out my first Haiku, and you know what, I would really like it if you could take a moment out of your day and let me know what you think about my Haiku. Please feel free to leave either a compliment, criticism or a brief thought about what I wrote and maybe what you think I meant – all comments are welcomed. With that, I leave you with a famous Haiku, from that website I found Haiku Poetry.
My life, –
How much more of it remains?
The night is brief.
