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.
You’re welcome to submit your New Year’s haiku for publishing here as well. You can find more info on how to write a haiku article here, and also below — in brief — should you need a refresher.
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.
