Today I had the delightful pleasure of leading a haiku writing workshop at the adult rec center in Tempe, AZ. I did the exercises along with the attendees. This haiku came out of the second writing activity in which I handed each writer three notecards with random images on them. The directive was to write a haiku about one of the photos or create a storyline haiku from all three, it was up to them. They had 6 minutes in which to compose haiku.
I did the exercises along with the attendees.
Dealing myself 3 cards as well, I turned them over (photo above) and jotted down the haiku in the photo based on all three (a line for each). I also wrote the following one for one of the images:
wiry & wily
quieted only for her
he loved intensely
The workshop was brief and fun—so like haiku!
