While English haiku tend to be 10-14 syllables, the classic Japanese haiku is 17 syllables.
On Twitter earlier, I took up @MyWordWizard‘s haiku challenge:
“Got haiku? We’d love to read it. Submit @MyWordWizard at http://tinyurl.com/SubmitPoem #poettalk #poems #poetry #poet #writer #haiku”
I may submit it to their site, but then it occured to me – can you better this? Can you sum up your day today in a haiku?
“Sitting at home with toddler, /toys on floor, food in hair,/
what bliss./And mess”…
