(This post is part of the Health Activist Writer’s Month Challenge hosted by WEGO Health. I will be writing a post a day for all 30 days. You can learn more about it here: http://info.wegohealth.com/HAWMC2012.)

 

Today’s writing prompt is to write a haiku. Haiku is a form of Japanese poetry. It doesn’t rhyme and usually consists of 3 lines of verse: 5 syllables, 7 syllables, 5 syllables. Here are a few I came up with.

 

Cool breezes I like
You can take the warmth away
Dry I aspire to

Take me as I am
Or don’t embrace me at all
I’m my worst critic

What if my puddles
Could one day save the world?
It would be worth it
