Haiku 26/30 #npm30

It’s only been in the past few years that I discovered haiku don’t always follow the 5-7-5 syllable count I was taught. In fact, according to Akita International Haiku Network, the most common haiku form currently is a 3-5-3 format, Today’s haiku borrows a topic and words from Laura Purdie Salas’s Digging for Poetry National Poetry Month Project in a 3-5-3 haiku format.

nature’s dream
the virtues of surge
and quiet


For my National Poetry Project, I’m playing along with the poetry calendar created by Margaret and Molly.
