Blast from the past: #200 of #365 A Prompt A Day For Bee ~ Arrival

April 2019

I should have chosen my re-posting times a little better I think. However, shops probably already prepare for Christmas again so my timing might not be that bad!

December 2014

This month it looks like I am on the lookout for new #poetry #prompts for my project. Like yesterday I scoured Twitter for prompts and ended up on the Imaginality blog and its post from 1st December: Day 1 Advent Creative Calendar (blog does not exist anymore)

Now I do not believe in the 5 – 7 – 5 syllable rule for haiku because I do not think syllables works quite like the Japanese “on”. ย According to Wikipedia an “on” is rather a sound than a syllable. Not quite sure how that could be translated into western languages and Haiku poets all over the world discuss this intensely.

However, it is a great exercise to restrict yourself to a syllable rule, and that is why I will follow the exact prompt offered by Imaginality.
