Why it’s on the list: Because someone suggested it! At this moment in time I couldn’t even tell you how many syllables there are in a haiku …..
How/when I’ll judge this task to be completed: When I have worked out what I’m meant to be doing and written a proper haiku.
Ok it’s Tuesday 21st August and I’ve spent all day so far in bed feeling ill – headache, nausea and feeling dizzy. Decided to try and be vaguely productive so I looked up what a haiku actually was and found out it’s a 3 line poem that:
Has five syllables in the first line, seven in the second and five in the third;
Paints a picture of the beauty of nature; and
Has some sort of surprise in the final line.
So with that in mind, here is my very first haiku …
Light breeze rustles leaves
As birds share their souls through song
I listen from bed
