Spurgeon’s College (college for future UK Baptist ministers) has a Christmas Haiku competition.
I’ve been having some fun trying my hand at haiku, a Japanese form of poetry, in this case with five syllables in the first line, seven in the second, and five in the third.
Here’s an example of a haiku, written when I was 12:
The surface ripples.
Blue arrow dives from green bow.
Kingfisher! And gone.
