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.
