I enjoy participating in the Alphabet Haiku Challenges.

Here are Haiku Basics:

  1. It is a 3-line poem that records the essence of a single moment in nature (i.e. a leaf falling from the tree).
  2. When written in English, it generally follows the syllabic pattern 5-7-5, although the rule is that it may have 17 syllables or LESS. When straying from the 5-7-5, the center line should still be longer than the first and last.
  3. It is untitled (but I title mine for the sake of reference).
  4. It is unrhymed.

The Alphabet Haiku adds one more rule to the ones listed above:

  • Every word in the haiku must begin with the same letter.

Alphabet Haiku Challenge -Q

This week’s letter is ‘Q’ so participants were encouraged to
“think of a plant or animal beginning with that letter about which you could write.”

Create and then post it and add “AHC” to your tags.

It’s a Haiku… and every word in it has to begin this week with that one letter = Q

Try it! It’s harder than you think!

Quails qualify

Quiet, quaking, quick, queenly

Quack! Quaint questioning


I have been writing daily from an A-Z list of “What Makes Me Happy.” I already shared

A= Antelope, B = Birthdays, and C=Christmas. Today should have been a day for “D”, but

Alphabet Haiku Challenge ~ P

by Abigail Gronway

we were asked to use “P” as the letter and write an Alphabet Haiku. As you know, Haiku is a poetry form of three lines with the syllabic count of 5, 7, 5. An alphabet Haiku follows that pattern, but every word in the poem must begin with the same letter. That’s a challenge!

So, I am skipping ahead to the letter P to participate in the Alphabet Haiku Challenge.

Of course, as you might guess, PUPPIES make me happy!
