One of my favourite writing pastimes is to write haiku. In just a few words and lines it is possible to conjure up all sorts of feelings and imagery. I feel it is almost like painting with words.
As an example, here's one I wrote the other day -
A child's spade
left from summer.
Writing haiku is not only satisfying but I believe it can help with writing skills and, if you are interested, is well worth trying yourself.
Every day I make a point of visiting Polona's blog, http://crowsndaisies.blogspot.com . Not only does Polona write exquisite haiku but each is accompanied by a beautiful picture. Polona lives in Slovenia and having holidayed in Kranjska Gora last year, I know what stunning scenery there is in her country.
As this blog is concerned with writing, here's another I wrote but with the writer in mind -
A new article
printed off. The postman
rings the bell.
And finally one more, with an image to ponder.
A swan silently on a lake.
Have a good weekend.
