What I’m writing in September…
I’m working on haikus! A Haiku isThey sound easy, but I have discovered that not only is less more in quality, it is a lot more in work! When you rabbit on (as I tend to do) with long form writing, not every word has to be spot on perfect. But, in a haiku, every single syllable must earn it’s place 100 percent. Not only that, but it seems that the definition of a syllable can be subjective to whoever is reading it!
Here is one I wrote a little while ago, an ode to my mother…
She has a black thumb,
So tries to keep a fake plant,
Alas, plastic melts
