March 7th … Haiku prompt … a fast or diet.

prompt: fast
brilliant sky sparkling water awe – fasting with purpose

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Prompt: diet
gluttony creeps in on little ant feet – dieting no longer

  1. I am not sure I understand how to write this type of Haiku … is there a structure to follow or syllables? I like them — I just am not sure where to start my hand at them. Trusting you are getting stronger and stronger ~~

    • Thursday or Friday … if I continue to feel this good (ah the glories and hazards of Prednisone) I am going to put together some information for you both and send it to you. And of course I hope that it will be helpful. Both of you … thank you for your comments.

      Becca, I am really feeling quite good now. I have worked very hard at this and so many wonderful people like yourself have sent me loving and healing energy that … well, I am getting better. Thank God.

  2. fasting and sparkling water, gluttony and diet–great imagery! I also don’t understand the structure but I love how it rolls off the tongue. Is it another form of haiku other than 5-7-5? I’m still learning the various forms…Good job!

    How are you feeling today?

  3. 5-7-5 as a haiku form is only correct in Japanese. The reasons for this deal with differences between what counts as a syllable in the different languages. On my blog I will be attempting to discuss this in an upcoming “haiku tip”. The following website gives a good explanation of the forms of Haiku.

    Also, if you pick up any haiku journal such as “Modern Haiku” or “Frog Pond” you will rarely see a 5-7-5 haiku. You can check out more info on my blog in the upcoming weeks too.

    Raven. I like your haiku. Very creative. Take care and watch out for that prednisone. 🙂

  4. Raven, I am a true greenhorn/uninformed when it comes to Haiku, but I do see the breadth of concept with so few words. I love that aspect of the form. However, that’s with any poem. I’ll stop now, I’m just confirming my ignorance.

  5. I am reading the comments….

    Feel stupid because of my lack knowledge of literature…I just read anything, poem, novel, haiku, chastuska.. whatever.. and even some time I don’t know what is it. I just read it, and I know is it beautiful or not, and the most important is whether I love it or not. And I love your words 🙂

    **sorry for the miss grammatical, I am not an English native
