Ladysighs teaches herself to write Minute Poems and Lanterne poetry. Mrs P of Destination Unknown challenges herself to create Villanelles. Their willingness to play with form and words inspired me to attempt a haiku; my very first haiku, ever, emerging, as I near the completion of my fifties!
The monarchs return
when the plums ripen and fall
and the winds blow home.
There it is; short and sweet 😉
Will I write more haiku, or try my hand, and brain, at another form of poetry ? Maybe, but probably not yet. I would like to concentrate my spare creative energy on my chap books. They need a massive transformation before they are ready to fly.
