It is May 1 but my mind, as I biked through Fairfield Glade in Crossville, Tennessee was still on yesterday, National Poetry Day. Besides being able to compose it on a bike, boat, beach, or battlefield, poets of any age can write a haiku. What better way to teach the importance of every word or syllable than by adhering to the simple 5-7-5 structure?
Here is my contribution to the joy of writing poetry--and to celebrating this beautiful Tennessee plateau.
Bridal white petals
Wind strewn, dot green carpet lawns
Birds trill wedding songs.
