I’ve discovered I really like writing haiku. I’ve found them a great distraction these last few weeks. I love playing with words and although haiku are relatively simple in form, their structure requires as much creative thought as any regular poem.
Usually haiku relate to emotions or seasons, often focused in nature, which appeals to me as I also enjoy taking photographs on my walks – another form of distraction in these troubled times!
I’ve taken to posting mine on my various social media channels. Here’s one of my recent ones. There are more on my Haiku page; I may voice them up at some point.
