Haiku

A haiku is a 3-line poem with 17 syllables, written in a 5/7/5 syllable count. Thought I’d give it a bash!

 

Haiku is a Japanese form of short poetry. A traditional haiku consist of 17 syllables, in three phrases of 5, 7 and 5 syllables respectively. Here’s one I wrote in 2010. Short, but sweet?
First, pitch dark ahead
Strike xenon gas into life
The road eggs me on

In 2008 I attended a couple of creative writing courses. Then I joined a writing group and wrote some more. Eventually I ended up with a lot of pieces of work scattered around in books and folders, as well as floating around the Internet. I bought a domain name and decided a blog would be a nice place to put my writing. This is my creative outlet and I hope you find something here you like.

Tell me whatcha think!
