I wrote my Haiku in the 5/7/5 form that I always use. Colleen suggested I the other forms of 3/5/3 and 2/3/2. Colleen even showed me an example of each. Well I try never to shrink from challenge so I am going to have a go .

Here is my original. The prompts were Calm and Present.

All still and pleasant

My mind is empty, peaceful

Time stops in the now.

All is quiet

Live in the moment

Stilled softly

    I’m so proud of you, Willow. Those abbreviated forms are difficult but you captured the feelings in those words. Haiku is about feelings and you nailed it! ❤
