Haiku Friday - When Writing Haiku

Haiku Friday

When writing Haiku
seventeen syllable thoughts
are very helpful.

Eighteen or Sixteen
syllable thoughts won't do it.
They're a little off.

I'm not a user of this Haiku. Can we get it tempura fried?

Teresa said...

Oh, isn't that the truth! Now, off to come up with my own 17 syllable thought for the day! :)

I blame my southern drawl on my syllable miscounts.

LOL @ Tara R. ..! I always lose count so I get frustrated and leave it to masters like LouCeeL..!

"Thinking needs be done,
Any syllables at all!"
Empty minds cry out.

Ha ha ha I am still overly impressed with your 100 word hiaku

This is great! I like Haiku, but more to read than to actually create. Not so great at that part, but I enjoy reading yours. :)
