Last night I finally figured out what was wrong with my Thanksgiving haiku. It was supposed to have three lines, which it did. The first line was to have 5 syllables, which I thought it did because when I say “everywhere” it only has 3 syllables, as in the poetic ev’rywhere. I was in bed last night trying to go to sleep when I finally figured out what the problem was, so here is my Thanksgiving haiku, one more time!
made by loving, caring hands
feeds body and soul.
I think I’m going to save poetry for the poets!
