I’ve started posting my regular tweets in haiku format, as an experiment, and as a bit of fun for the summer. Haiku poetry has a simple format, and does not need to write. Thus it’s easier for me to come up with. The standard format for haiku is 3 lines, with 17 syllables total. There are 5 syllables in the first line, 7 in the second, and 5 in the third. I figure it’s a bit of an intellectual exercise, and a bit of fun as well.
I’m not sure if you’ve ever tried writing in Haiku, bit it’s actually quite a bit of fun, and a little bit of a challenge.
What do you think? Could you do it?
