Fly on Yellow Flower, 7.3.17

Haiku for the Fly, or Flyku – by Bill Bytsura

Fly on the flower

The puny fly in the pie

All in the flies eye

Traditional haiku are always the same, including the following features, try making your own about a fly…..

  1. There are only three lines, totaling 17 syllables.
  2. The first line is 5 syllables.
  3. The second line is 7 syllables.
  4. The third line is 5 syllables like the first.
  5. Punctuation and capitalization are up to the poet, and need not follow rigid rules used in structuring sentences.
  6. A haiku does not have to rhyme, in fact usually it does not rhyme at all.
  7. Some haiku can include the repetition of words or sounds

A little silliness today……
