Let me preface this by saying that I know it is not very good. It does, however, follow the 3 basic precepts of Modern Haiku, and it was inspired by my immediate surroundings.
- It adheres to the 5 – 7 – 5 rhythmic pattern.
- It includes a seasonal reference.
- It contains a juxtaposed idea (subject shift).
Cat mewing softly,
Tiny dog asleep on couch.
Cool start to hot day!
