iCreateDaily community member, Beth Murphy kicked off the 2021 by sharing a New Year Haiku. Haiku is a great way to kickstart creativity, since it’s just a three line poem, so we invited others to also share their New Year Haiku.
You’re welcome to submit yours for publishing here as well. We will publish New Year Haiku poems here, and also in our how to write a haiku article, which you can also reference for haiku format if you need a refresher. You’re also invited to submit other than New Year Haiku if you’d like and we can publish them on that other article as well.
The Plural of Haiku
Haiku is the plural of haiku in the same way that deer and sheep are both singular and plural forms of those nouns. Haiku poetry originated as a Japanese art form, and the Japanese language implies plurality in context rather than application of an “s” at the end of words.
