What It Is to Write

23 Jun

The haiku expresses so much with so little. It’s an ancient poetic form that strikes a beautiful balance between constraint and freedom. This week’s Badgerblog selection is a winning example of the haiku—a small and singular moment brought to life in seventeen syllables. Congratulations to Angela for a wonderful celebration of what it is to write!

Writing Haiku

Pencil lead scratching,
On stiff creamy white paper,
Beautiful writing.
