I’m not being normal of course, counting syllables, but Writers Digest Day 17 prompt calls for us to write a haiku. Of course I’ve not dug deep into the essence of haiku.
“The essence of haiku is “cutting” (kiru). This is often represented by the juxtaposition of two images or ideas and a kireji (“cutting word”) between them, a kind of verbal punctuation mark which signals the moment of separation and colors the manner in which the juxtaposed elements are related.” (Wikipedia)
I’m still digesting what it means. You have a go. Here’s my attempt:
She’ll spill your beans,
rack up wobbly, dreary sins
–water down your back.
