"Satin Strings" A Basketball Haiku
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...
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.
