I’ve been learning about haiku from a friend on Writing.com. I always thought they had to have five syllables in the first line, seven syllables in the second line and five syllables in the third line. Apparently not.
So I wrote a haiku based on the information she gave me. It had to be three lines only, with a total syllable count of 17 or less. There should be only one verb, there should be a word that indicates the season, and the last line should twist the first two lines and give an ‘a ha’ moment. No complete sentences, no punctuation.
