NaPoWriMo Poem #19: Haiku #4

By Daniel Paiz

Sometimes the fewer words said, the bigger the impact of the piece. Haikus are ideally suited to meet such a requirement, and therefore explains our fascination with them. If you haven’t tried writing a haiku, it’s pretty simple to do.

All you have to do is write three lines. The first is five syllables, the second is seven, and the final line is five syllables again. That’s the only rule of a haiku, the syllable count. Try it out if you haven’t before, and to get more inspiration from previous works, check out our other haikus here.

Haiku #4

Mirrors tell no lies,

You’ll see what you tried to hide,

Accept who you are.
