Many move mountains,
many more move molehills —
mouse moved mighty mane.

Alphabet Haiku Challenge

  • Every word in the haiku must begin with the same letter
  • When written in English, it generally follows the syllabic pattern 5-7-5
  • Haiku/Senryu Poetry – Here is an in-depth description of Haiku/Senryu Poem (also called human haiku) is an unrhymed Japanese verse consisting of three unrhymed lines of five, seven, and five syllables (5, 7, 5) or 17 syllables in all. Senryu is usually written in the present tense and only references to some aspect of human nature or emotions. They possess no references to the natural world and thus stand out from nature/seasonal haiku.

Inspired by Touch Press’ beautiful iPad app “Five Fables” featuring Nobel Prize winning Seamus Heaney’s translation of Robert Henryson’s, a 15th-century Scottish poet, versification of Aesop’s “The Lion and the Mouse” and four other fables as read by Sir Billy Connolly. Genius.
