I’m a hungry beast
devouring ignorance with
each stroke of my pen.
Today’s poem is in the form of a haiku. Haiku is a Japanese style of poetry that combines form, content, and language in a meaningful, yet compact form. The first line usually contains five syllables, the second line seven syllables, and the third line contains five syllables (5,7,5). A Haiku must “paint” a mental image in the reader’s mind. This is the challenge of Haiku – to put the poem’s meaning and imagery in the reader’s mind in ONLY 17 syllables over just three lines of poetry!
