We haven’t done much with form yet. Who’s ready for a classic? A haiku has three lines and uses specific syllables – 5, 7, 5. Traditionally, the haiku is about nature.
i have been writing (5 syllables)
a lot. only day thirtenn! (7 syllables)
time for more coffee. (5 syllables)
Today, write two haikus. Your first one should be about nature. Your second haiku should be the opposite – anything that isn’t nature.
