For some reason, I woke up this morning with the need to write Haiku!
I have never tried it before, and am not quite sure that this qualifies properly, but it was there in my head already formed, so I wrote it down quick!

A moment together
the air fills with song
my heart sings

I think maybe it's quite a useful exercise in brevity. I found a good website, if anybody else wants to give it a try -

- but be warned, it could be addictive!
The overall aim, it seems, is to say something meaningful 'using an economy of words to paint a multi-tiered painting, without "telling all".'

Please send me your efforts !

  1. Aggh Haiku. I did this once as an exercise when I was at a Creative writing course back in College. It's extriemly tricky I find. That and I'm not much of a poet. Lovly Haiku though :). I think one I came up with when doing that course was something ot do with horses. I can't remmeber the exact words. I'll try and find it at some point to show you.
