NaPoWriMo Poem #3: Haiku #1

By Daniel Paiz

There are many forms of poetry one can write. A particular one that I keep using when not writing in rhyme or a slam piece is the classic haiku. A reminder for all those who don’t know or have forgotten, a haiku generally tends to be presented in the 5-7-5 format, meaning 5 syllables, then 7 syllables, and then 5 syllables again.

Haikus are meant to be pondered on and thought about, while also accepting them at face value. For this go-round of NaPoWriMo, here’s our first haiku of the month:

Haiku #1

Many fails at first,

Persistence will lead to work,

Please, put yourself first.
