-> A 5-7-5 syllable pattern
-> The use of season and/or nature words
-> A two-part juxtapositional structure (I don't know what this means)
-> Objective sensory imagery (I'm not sure what this means either)
Anyway, these are my favorites that I wrote today:
a chill snowy night --
hacksaw makes short work of bone
then, she boil'd a stew
pharmaceuticals man-made --
not fit for haiku
silver floweth straight
wizened, weary, aged locks
shining bright like chrome
I think tomorrow I'm going to communicate using limericks. Or maybe epic poems. We'll see.
Now it's your turn... it'd be really cool if you left a haiku as a comment. No pressure though.
