Creativity Exercise: Head Start on a Haiku

I know, I know. It's not the first time I've asked you to write a haiku. But here's why I keep coming back to this poetic format: It's doable. No matter how busy you are, you have time to write 17 syllables.

Remember the rules: Five syllables in the first line. Seven syllables in the second line. Five syllables in the third line.

And, there's a twist this time. Let's all incorporate the phrase: Love is letting go.

(The wonderful thing about creativity? None of us will do the same thing with that same line.)

If you want my love
Is letting go deemed a must
This trapeze is high.

To know what love is
Letting go is a bold start
But may be the end.

Her love is letting
Go to the auto dealer
Two ninety-nine monthly.

Sounds like love is let
Ting go her tired heart strings
In my last Haiku.

I LOVE it. I love all of them. Especially the way you took the line and didn't use it as one line.

And creativity like that, my friends, is why I like this blog.

This trapeze is high. Perfect line.

Love is letting go
And trusting, blindly trusting
That it will come back

That is wonderful!!!!

OK, now I want to do one ... I kept running through options in my head while I was out driving. If I get anything I like as much as these, I'll post.
