Haiku poetry

Posted by stuff4sam on September 22, 2006

As the nights draw in we thought we’d try our hand at writing haiku (haiki??), a form of short Japanese poetry. The rules are quite complicated so we won’t go into them here (visit the wiki explanation if you want to know more) but it seemed a fitting thing to add to the site as Sam’s mum is Japanese.

Rabbit eyes staring
iced screen, wipers frozen wide.
warm breath vaporises.
