Poetry month is almost over and I can’t believe I haven’t posted about it at all! I love poetry! So I decided to write a haiku for this installment of I SPY.
Favorite color concealed
Yellow! spring revealed
My inspiration for this haiku was a neighbor who must love yellow considering all the forsythia and daffodils in their yard. Haiku are fun to write because their structure is pretty simple. A haiku consists of three lines of 5,7,5 syllables. I also like them because traditionally they are written about nature. I learned all I know about haikus from Wabi Sabi (included in this book list), a picture book written in haiku, with a brief yet very informative afterword.
Now it’s your turn to share a haiku or poem you have written, links welcome!
