- I love to write poems, short stories ( fiction or non-fiction)… but sometimes I need a muse and the perfect mood to start with a new one. Well aren’t we all writers feel this way?
Aside from writing , I love to create too. I love and enjoy arts. I also like to take photos to anything that caught my eye. Anyways, each of us here in the blogging community has something to offer in the world. I believe that we all are here and that we are doing what we are doing now in the blogging world for a reason or just because…
Since, I started my Art Game, I noticed that I gained more friends. ( I prefer to call my followers as my friends or buddies here in the blogging community). Although all are not participating but in one way or another I get to know other bloggers through them. Awesome, isn’t it?
Because of this I thought of something for those who just love to write like me… so how about we do something “For The Love Of Haiku”? And that is how I’d like to call this some kind of fun or mind-game.
Everyone is welcome to join me in this fun just because you love what you are doing and you are happy to do it.
Every first week of the month (revised) I will post an image that I got from my Art Game and then you write down your Haiku based on what you see on the image.
- The title of your post should always have – For the Love of Haiku
- Link your post to this page : For the Love of Haiku
- You can check previous For the Love of Haiku posts to get more inspiration.
- Optional. Every last week of the month we will vote and see who gets the highest votes (revised) among the Haiku Lovers who submitted and posted their Haiku with the subject image in their Blogs :)
- To those who do not wish to post their Haiku with the Art Game image in their blog but have brilliant Haiku to share with us, by all means you can just write down your Haiku in the comment area and I will post your Haiku for you… piece of cake right :)

What is Haiku?
Haiku is a wonderful form of poetry. Its formal structure of 17 syllables divided into three lines of five, seven and five syllables. Although it can be useful to impose such a structure when first approaching this old Japanese form of poetry, a deeper understanding of the component parts is essential to a clear appreciation of the form and its purpose.
Form Of Haiku
- Five-seven-five haiku are often referred to as “strict form” and poems without this structure are known as “free-form“. In the main, however, haiku writers arrange their poems over three lines, with the second invariably longer than the other two. English language free-form haiku are on the increase as more people notice that English can provide the same amount of information in fewer syllables than an equivalent Japanese work.

- What is good haiku?
To have the right approach, Bill Higginson‘s The Haiku Handbook tells us: “When we compose a haiku we are saying, ‘It is hard to tell you how I am feeling. Perhaps if I share with you the event that made me aware of these feelings, you will have similar feelings of your own’.”

A gorgeous glow smiled at me
She brightened my whole day
