Focus (National Poetry Writing Month poem #28)

By Daniel Paiz

Just as national poetry writing month starts quick out the gate, it races towards the finish line just as quick. There are only a handful of pieces left, and they are going to be some good ones. But before getting to the big finale, let’s take another haiku break.

If you haven’t taken a haiku break by now, it’s difficult to understand why that is. Five syllables, then seven, and then another five. You don’t have to be really good at rhyming. Instead, you just have to put words together that make people think and reread it several times. Focus.


Finish how you start,

Efforts take you to the top,

Ignore all the noise.
