A beach haiku

Sun is shining strong
Sand is squeaky under paws
Smells and fun abound

Kenta, one of Tim's Japanese students, gave a presentation on writing haiku. The first and third lines have to have 5 syllables and the middle line has to have 7 syllables. Tim explained it to me and I thought I'd give it a go. Why don't you?

Life is great when you are writing Japanese poetry.

Gosh, how clever of you, Ruby, to write a haiku!! I must give it a try...

Slobber, slobber, slob
Slobber, slobber, slobber, slob
Slobber, slobber, slob

How's that?? ;)

OK, OK - I'll ask my human to help me and try again properly later!

Sun shines in pasture.
Dogs running, playing, spinning.
I don't want to go to work!

Fun post, Ruby Isabella!

Jean said...

And an hour later, I realize I suck at haiku (or I need more coffee) - 'cause I did 5-7-7 instead of 5-7-5!!! Duh!

I rarely drop comments, but i did some searching and wound up here
"A beach haiku". And I do have a couple of questions for you if it's allright. Could it be only me or does it give the impression like a few of the comments come across like they are coming from brain dead people? :-P And, if you are posting on other places, I would like to keep up with anything fresh you have to post. Could you list of all of all your public pages like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
