Poetry, poetry everywhere!

The haiku!  This form of poetry is fun to write, but also requires the poet to consider language choice closely. “A traditional Japanese haiku is a three-line poem with seventeen syllables, written in a 5/7/5 syllable count. Often focusing on images from nature, haiku emphasizes simplicity, intensity, and directness of expression” (http://www.poets.org/poetsorg/text/poetic-form-haiku).

Choose one of the following photos (or more than one) and create a haiku about it.  My example is based on the last photo:

Bubbles ev’rywhere;

Ephemeral summer joy…

How I will miss you!
