The idea of writing a nature haiku made me think about my connection to what I was writing about. How am I connected to this ? What is my link and understanding of this creature?
I have always understood the idea behind a haiku but the beauty of distilling something into a few syllables really made me focus.
Here is my first attempt- I look forward to writing more over the week and getting much better at both recognising my connections and using my finest word.
"orange beak wader
wingspan marked in black and white
calls across the shore"
