My First Haiku

Entered.

This was my first attempt writing a Haiku poem. I found it to be somewhat challenging, yet quite enjoyable, too. Of course, being me, I did a bit of research before just jumping in with both feet and going for it.

The contest runs from April 17th – April 25th, with the winner being announced on April 26th, 2019.

#pocketpoem

I’ve got a poem in my pocket,
Figuratively speaking that is.
Since I don’t go out much,
I won’t be sharing my words.

Except for here on social media,
Which spreads chat and memes,
To people all over the world.

So enjoy this poem for what it is,
And let your own mind run free.
Inspiration can strike anyone,
Anywhere, anytime.

So let it.
