“What is a Haiku? It’s a Japanese poem with three lines (5 syllables, 7 syllables, 5 syllables) and is traditionally about nature. However, my Hump Day Haiku can also be called Haiku that Hurt! Or Hilarious Haiku… or err.. at least I think they are funny!”
I’m putting the Hump Day Haiku button just on my post now, but hopefully I will have it form part of my main buttons on my 30th post, a challenge to myself to keep at it.
Bakasyon kami ngayon
So that was a little lame. A little challenging to work the syllables using the Filipino language.
Hump day Haiku #4 (I could go forever hahaha but let me see how this one looks like)
You wrote, you fought and
Longed for the country’s freedom
That’s real. My hero.
So much better! Uhm, I think I’ll resist the temptation from making another one and appeal to the nationalistic spirit of fellow Filipinos to aptly honor the life and loves of this revolutionary that truly deserves a lot more than what was given to him.
