Today is National Haiku Day, celebrating the Japanese style of writing poetry with 17 syllables broken into three lines of five, seven, and five. They traditionally evoke images of nature, and their simplistic style has made them popular worldwide. In honor of this holiday, I have compiled three haikus from my poetry collections.
Florida: A Haiku Hot, humid, beach time Disney World is lots of fun Alligator watch
Babel: A Haiku To build a tower They wanted to reach Heaven God mixed language.
Sorry, Moses Moses strikes the rock He disobeyed God and lost Can’t enter Promised Land.
