Haiku – Indie Ink #2

My Indie Ink writing challenge this week was from Bewildered Bug and I challenged Jen O.

I decided to do something I’ve never attempted before – Haiku. I based it on Haiku in English which can be up to 17 syllables. I learned that Haiku shouldn’t ‘tell all’ and also not reveal everything about its subject. I also learned that it should include a season (I opted for nature) and compare two images implicitly.

Here is my attempt:

Milkshake
Mount St Helens;
Coconut milk
Lake Placid

My prompt was: lactose intolerance (! I have to admit being stumped when I first saw my prompt but it made me think in a different way – so thank you, Bewildered Bug!)

A bit of fun – which I wrote when I was feeling light-hearted.
