Japanese poetry

  • Only three lines, totaling 17 syllables throughout
  • The first line must be only 5 syllables
  • The second line must be comprised of 7 syllables
  • The third line must be 5 syllables like the first

so why bother? I never have…

well until now. so why?

Why do Sudoku, why solve a crossword,  

To challenge your mind. 🙂

for my first attempt.


Ambers sunset

gossamer clouds, float
rippling, water subsides
gold replaces blue
