The Lighthouse – A Haiku

I have always wanted to participate in Ronovan's Haiku Challenge. Finally, this week I have courage enough to post. The prompt for this week are the words "Top & Light." Here's my haiku for RonovanWrites #Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt #Challenge #100 Top&Light. ©Mind and Life Matters. Photo Clicked by Nitin Pillai.  

Haiku Tutorial and Announcement!

I think this is too good to not share! Plus, it is the perfect opportunity for me to attempt my first ever Haiku. Do give it a try.
You might also want to hop over to Camster Origami’s post and congratulate him for winning the 2nd place in National Poetry Contest.

Well, here’s my feeble attempt:

Sky full of bright stars
Soothing sound of the river
New voyage beckons

I rarely ask you to reblog my posts, but today, please do! Why? Coming to that part, it’ll be at the end.

You also don’t know that I’m an alien.

But that’s beside the point. So, I won 2nd in a National Poetry contest. Yep! So today, I’m going to a) teach you how to make a Haiku and b) make the announcement that’s worth the reblogs!

But I can’t rhyme, you say. It’s alright- haikus don’t usually rhyme!

So this first part sounds all complicated, but it isn’t: A haiku is a three line poem that has a syllable pattern. No! Don’t go running!


Dang it. Stick figure guy is out. But… it’s okay, it’s not that bad.

Line 1- 5 Syllables

Line 2- 7 Syllables

Line 3- 5…
