The ‘WordPress’ Daily Challenge has had some pretty inane subjects, but today the idea took my fancy, and maybe it will some of you too?
“Write a haiku about something that drives you nuts.”
Here it is.
There is a debate about ‘Haiku’ versus ‘Senryu’ – which you can read about here but generally a haiku, which is originally Japanese, can be described as a syllable counted verse, often with lines of 5 then 7 and then 5 syllables (though in English sometimes fewer as our syllables are often longer) which generally features an aspect of nature, usually a seasonal reference, an observation which can give some sort of leap of understanding or insight
