Haiku Challenge Altered & Accepted! – I

WordPress reminded me of our third anniversary today.
That’s right, I’ve been blogging for three whole years (Say what?!).

So the other day, I was reading this: Weekly Writing Challenge: Haiku Catchoo!
And I said to myself, “Why not?”
But I tweaked the rules a little. What I’m serving you with is not a Haiku in theory. That is, instead of using 5/7/5 syllables (read article), I used 5/7/5 words.
And now I don’t know what to call them.

So anyway, I’m presenting you with three ‘Haiku-inspired-non-Haiku’.
Tell me what you think!



Shivering leaves held on precariously

To the boughs of that old tree

But they never let go.



The wind was blowing softly

While the rain came down in drizzles,

Embracing Nature and Man alike.



The rain kissed the Earth

He had once walked on, with her,

And now lay buried in.
