Today is the launch of Penguin Random House’s Holiday Haiku campaign. If you tweet a short haiku on Twitter and use the hashtag #HolidayHaiku, PRH will donate one dollar (up to $2000) to City Harvest, an organization dedicated to feeding the hungry in New York during the holidays. Read more here.
If you’re going to do a haiku, here’s the format: three lines, with five syllables in line one, seven syllables in line two, and five syllables in line three. Simple enough. OR IS IT???
I was asked to write a haiku about a very short romance. Here goes, but I’m no poet, so be gentle.
Snowflakes on her book
I read over her shoulder
Laughed at the same time
Give it a shot! Put your poem in the comments if you’re feeling sassy!
