I just had to post this!

My friend, Leslie, has recently embarked on the whole writing prompt challenge that I’m doing. Yesterday she had to write a poem and she decided to pen this little haiku. I thought it was very appropriate because both of us live in Japan and hell, why not get into the whole Japanese spirit and life here by writing a traditional poem?!

For those of you who aren’t familiar with haiku, it’s a Japanese poem that involves 17 syllables in a 5,7,5 pattern. They’re also usually about the seasons, but modern ones break all those rules. Of course, it is a little more complicated than my basic explanation, but for the purpose of this post, it’s adequate.

This was just too good not to share!

Thanks Leslie!


This is a haiku.

It was my mom’s idea.

I’m lazy.  Thanks mom.
