How to Write Haiku Poetry Focus For The Week: I think we will keep working on the two sentence structure, but if you are already there regarding that, work on the opposite meanings of the two sentences. If your first sentence were about life then the second would be about death. Something like that. Remember, both focuses are just suggestions.
Proper Haiku structure is forming two complete sentences from your three lines. The middle line of the Haiku is the common line for each sentence. For sentence one, it’s the end of the sentence. For sentence two, it’s the beginning. Check my example below to see what I mean.
The rules are simple.
- Take the two words and write a Haiku. I use Haiku in English as my style, which is 5 syllables for the first line, 7 for the second, and 5 for the third, but you can use what you like. For syllable help visit HowManySyllables.com.
- The two words can be used as you like. Words have different definitions and you can use the definitions you like. You can even use a synonym word as long as it does not change the meaning. Go to Thesaurus.com for Synonym help.
- Copy the link of your finished haiku URL in a comment so we can all go and visit your site to see what you have done. I will comment on your site. You can do a ping back. What’s a ping back? Put a link back to this prompt page, if you like within your post, as long as it does not take away from your haiku. This is simply a prompt and challenge to encourage people to try Haiku and give some a prompt and a place to share in comments so we can find each other. A link in your post does give others a chance to find us and join in. Use one of the two below if you like.
- Ping back Link ronovanwrites-weekly-haiku-poetry-prompt-challenge-61-tears-wine/
- Non Ping back Link https://ronovanwrites.wordpress.com/category/haiku-prompt-challenge/
- You may copy one of the badges/images appearing in this post below or above and place it on your site if you wish, most normally use it within their post. I am not saying you need to, but if you would like to do so then go ahead. It is simply my way of saying thank you for participating. I sometimes make custom images for the week, if time and health permits.
The Challenge Words!
Tears & Wine
Turning tears into
Laughter is a miracle,
like water to wine.
The two sentences should read as;
Turning tears into laughter is a miracle.
Laughter is a miracle, like water to wine.
Much Respect-Much Love
