C4ward March Blogathon (Day 9) Prompt: Haiku Sunday
When you are in the process of creating your work, how do you feel? What is your experience (mentally, physically, spiritually, emotionally)? Write a Haiku to capture and express this often elusive process.
Tips on writing a Haiku:
The most common form for Haiku is three short lines. The first line usually contains five (5) syllables, the second line seven (7) syllables, and the third line contains five (5) syllables.
Haiku doesn't rhyme.
- Haiku is traditionally written in the present tense.
A Haiku is generally visual and "paints" a mental image in the reader's mind.
Good Haikus are metaphors. They elicit emotions and complex feelings through reference and allusion.

To the moon-beholders.- Bashō
The challenge of a Haiku is to express yourself in ONLY 17 syllables over just three (3) lines of poetry. That said, you are welcome to use whatever variation of the Haiku you come up with. The key is to have FUN!
EXTRAS FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION: Choose a different font that excites you and adds to the meaning of your Haiku. Increase the font size and change the color. Do you have an image that can accompany your poem or expand it?
