For Trifextra 83.
In the event anyone noticed I deleted my first entry. It just didn’t sit well with me.
We are tasked with writing a haiku this weekend.
HAIKU (noun) : an unrhymed verse form of Japanese origin having three lines containing usually five, seven, and five syllables respectively
One of my favorite Twitter friends is a writer of haiku. If you are at all interested in the form follow her @lordfanny1723. She is awesome: very smart and often sassy. She writes only 5-7-5 haiku, which is not a hard and fast rule for the form, as I’m sure lovers of haiku contributing this weekend will remark on. However, read her. You will be inspired. I would also say the same about Bjorn @brudberg and Pirate @pirategunn. Got to give credit where it’s due!
Staying with the 5-7-5 syllable count our editors have suggested, here is my offering.
in the mimosa
the tree and not the cocktail
a hummingbird sips
Thanks for reading!
