Red rooster rouses
Raucus rain rattles rafters
Roota roodle roo!
I enjoy participating in the Alphabet Haiku Challenges.
Here are Haiku Basics:
- It is a 3-line poem that records the essence of a single moment in nature (i.e. a leaf falling from the tree).
- When written in English, it generally follows the syllabic pattern 5-7-5, although the rule is that it may have 17 syllables or LESS. When straying from the 5-7-5, the center line should still be longer than the first and last.
- It is untitled (but I title mine for the sake of reference).
- It is unrhymed.
The Alphabet Haiku adds one more rule to the ones listed above:
- Every word in the haiku must begin with the same letter.
