As it is National Poetry Month I thought I would write a Haiku. Traditionally the Haiku has 17 syllables divided into 3 parts, the first with 5 syllables, the second with 7 syllables and the last with 5 syllables. The Japanese Haiku is written in one long line whereas the English Haiku is written in 3 lines. Generally the Haiku is written about nature or the seasons and the words paint the picture in the reader’s mind. The Haiku should appeal to the senses and encourage the reader to meditate on the topic. Mine captures the moment the fishing ends ………..
Sun sets, fishing stops
Herons hover overhead
Fish glide into reeds
