A to Z Challenge Theme Two – Reveal

Today is The Great and Powerful Theme Reveal for the A to Z Blogging Challenge. The Challenge kicks off April 1st and the challenge is to blog through the alphabet every day with Sunday’s off. 30 days or rather 26 days because there are only 26 letters in the alphabet.

I finished up my posts, especially since I am doing two themes for this challenge.

So, what’s my theme?

It is HAIKU.

We all have special moments in our lives. Perhaps it was the moment our child took his or her first steps, or said his or her first word. Perhaps it was the moment we were kissed for the first time, or the moment we took that high school diploma or college degree in our hands. Whatever those moments were, we captured them, in a photograph, a video, or simply with a poignant memory, so that we could recapture, and often share, the joy, the pride, the excitement; the emotional experience that made that moment special. Just as we capture a special moment in our lives, haiku poetry captures a moment in time, creating and sharing the joy, the wonder, and the perhaps profound emotional experience that exists within that moment.

Haiku is a form of poetry that focuses on a brief moment in time, and a sense of sudden illumination or enlightenment. A haiku is usually composed of seventeen syllables in three short lines. The first line often contains five syllables, the second line seven syllables, and the third line five syllables. A haiku is usually written in present tense, with a pause at the end of the first or second line, and it normally doesn’t rhyme.

I’m looking forward to reading and ‘meeting’ new bloggers during this challenge. I hope you’ll stop by and read my Haikus, and please feel free to leave your mark by commenting or liking the post. But also, please stop by and support other bloggers during the challenge.

If you’re participating in the challenge, please let me know. This will be my third time, and I always find it to be a wonderful ride. It feels like a real accomplishment when you make it all the way to Z. It’s an opportunity to connect with other bloggers, and to explore a theme that is close to your heart.

    Oh I so thought while writing the microfiction comment that “why doesn’t she write a HAIKU”
    Romila so glad that your theme is Haiku. So looking forward to your posts.
