Playing around with Haikus

Last night, I had a massive surge of inspiration. I don’t know what came over me, but some positive conversation and contemplating over feelings and thoughts made me start experimenting and writing down a lot of haikus.

I learned about Haikus in my poetry workshop last weekend. I’d never written one before. The concept is that they are a form of poetry but they are written as 3 lines with 5 syllables on the first line, 7 on the second, then again 5 on the 3rd. Although I was advised that there are some haikus that bend it a little bit with an extra syllable here and there 😉

I was awake until 2.30am writing loads of Haikus.

In total, I had written about 25. Then I was so inspired today that I wrote another 5. I have decided to share these Haikus with you. Along with these Haikus I also decided to make them unique and my own so I went through my photo album on my phone and just used Instagram story filters to tweak the photos a little bit and then type on my Haiku text.

My favourites that I’ve done are below and I hope you enjoy them.

Thanks for taking the time to look at my post 🙂 plenty more haiku and spoken word to come in the future xx
