Obsessing Over Haikus

Thanks to a workshop conducted at the office a while ago, I got to know about this app, HaikuJAM where one can write haikus.

A haiku in English is a very short poem in the English language, following to a greater or lesser extent the form and style of the Japanese haiku. A typical haiku is a three-line observation about a fleeting moment involving nature.

– Definition by Wikipedia

Anyone who is on the app can write one line related to the topic (you can also see who all contributed to the haiku). If you want, you can even start your own haiku and wait how it turns out after two other people are done with it. Now, it is quite interesting to see how a particular haiku turns out because you don’t how the other person is going to conclude the haiku you were a part of! At times, it gets irritating because you have something amazing in mind but the other person completely ruins it. On the other hand, it can also turn out to be better than what you had expected. I would say, it is an amazing app where you can play with words and display your talent in front of a LOT of people.

Also, if the haiku you were a part of is quite good, it even gets featured on the app! How amazing is that, huh?!

So, here are a few haikus I was a part of:
