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.

  2. “tell t’all times time’s tale.” Nice line. I like how you used an uncommon contraction and backed the two times against each other. It made me stop and thing about what you were saying, which is the whole point of writing poetry. 🙂

      Thanks so much. Thought the line good and expressive. ‘Twas fun doing an homage to Blake.
