I am signed up to Writing 201: Poetry and my first challenge is to compose a poem or a Haiku, using the prompt water.

I have written a few haiku before and I really enjoy the process of getting the rhythm just right, choosing the right words, counting the syllables…

We were also encouraged to use a simile in our poem/haiku, so me being… well me! I decided to attempt all three challenges in one go!

Here is my haiku, about water, including a simile… be kind, it’s not very good as it just popped into my head very quickly without much thought! My simile is way too simplistic… I’m not proud of it!


raindrops slide down my

window like tears from my eyes

the sky is crying

There ya go! Assignment one down… I might write a wee poem later too!
