Health Haiku #HAWMC Day 6 @wegohealth



Daily prompt: Health Haiku. Let’s switch up the writing style a bit for today’s posts! As you probably know, a haiku is a “miniature Japanese poem consisting of 17 syllables – five syllables in first line, seven in second, and five in the last. No rhyme or meter scheme is employed when writing haiku. The aim of the haiku is to create something greater than the sum of the parts.” Traditionally, haiku poems were written about nature and aim to capture the essence of the aspect of nature that is being described. So let’s go with this but, of course, make it about our health focus....

This is definitely a first for me. Although, it would not surprise me to learn this was a writing exercise we had to do in high school English class! So the first thing I did of course was Google "funny haiku images". Here's a few Funny Friday Haiku poems to get us going:
