It's a better haiku than I could create!
Gosh, yours must be pretty bad, Alex!
I've not managed to work the syllables bit yet. But I do know someone who does write haiku, so I'll let him know about it. Thanks, Patsy.
I'm OK on the syllables I think, Carol - it's the rest I have trouble with.
I never was much good at haikus but aren't Highland cattle lovely. We have herds of them up on the moor where they regularly stand in the middle of the road, refusing to budge, even when hooted at. And the calves are just gorgeous.
They are lovely, Gail. I saw a lot on our trip to Scotland and photographed most of them.
I love writing haikus...maybe I'll give it a go.
Good luck, Michelle.
I don't care whether that was strictly haiku, Patsy - it made me laugh!! :) :)
It was worth writing it then, Susan.
Cute li'l buffalo, that!
It does look a bit like a buffalo, Oscar. Not sure they're as furry though?
This is a haiku,But not a very good one.I don't like haikus.
It's at least as good as mine, Frances.
Ha! I love your haiku--and the Highland cattle! I've never been good at poetry with structure. I'm more a free verse type when I do write poetry.
My style is more 'should be restrained' verse than free verse, Jenni.
Thanks so much for commenting!
