Out my window

Inspired by Mama Kat's Pretty Much World Famous Writer's Workshop, I chose to write a haiku about what I saw outside my window.

I love haiku.  Some people are so super clever with them.  I'm not, but I still like them.  I think what appeals most to me is the order required -- three lines with the syllables counted for you in each line:

5 syllables
7 syllables
5 syllables

Nice and neat.  No need for rhyming (forced rhyming is just wrong)

Here's what I saw outside today - I even took a picture:
     Sun makes it look warm
     Twenty Degrees is just wrong
     When will spring be here?

It's cold here, but fall in New England is generally cold.  We've already had a dusting of snow and loads of frost.  I have even already worn my down jacket.  

Back to the haiku.  I thought of one for coffee:
     I love you coffee
     You help me to face each day
     Without you - I growl

See?  You obviously do not need any talent.  Just have fun.  Why don't you give it a try. Write about anything, just follow the pattern.  If you think can't - I say to you - if I can, anyone can.



  1. Haha - "without you I growl". I love haiku too. So easy and simple.
