"Satin Strings" A Basketball Haiku

Updated on January 15, 2017

Just Write

As a writer, I love to create poems, sayings, stories and even books. Haiku is an easy way to bring ideas to life. They are quick and fun.

You can Haiku

Haiku is a quick and creative way to write about anything you like. It can be inspirational or it can be just plain old fun. With the 5-7-5 sound unit also called syllables or moras you can enjoy making your own original haiku writing.

So think of an idea or find a picture you love and tell a story in just a few words. Here is one that I wrote...

Believe in Yourself
Believe in Yourself

Satin strings of hope

Confidence in the dribble

Trust in the shot "Swish"

I believe everyone has something that they strive to be their best at. No matter what it is, when we achieve our goals we all get our own "Swish" of accomplishment.

Life is like basketball...All you need is faith in yourself and the drive to succeed.

Write it Down

Every day, write down some of your thoughts. Or maybe look at a photo you took and try to describe it in a Haiku Form. Before you know it you will be writing great small poems about your favortie things.
