Lynx labeled large
left leg landing listlessly
lacerated, lame

Authors Note: The photo above is an Eurasian lynx, of the four lynx species it is the largest in size, it is also the third largest predator in Europe, so that’s where I got  the first line of the Haiku from Wikipedia.

  • Every word in the haiku must begin with the same letter.
  • When written in English, it generally follows the syllabic pattern 5-7-5
  • Haiku/Senryu Poetry – Here is an in-depth description of Haiku/Senryu Poem (also called human haiku) is an unrhymed Japanese verse consisting of three unrhymed lines of five, seven, and five syllables (5, 7, 5) or 17 syllables in all. Senryu is usually written in the present tense and only references to some aspect of human nature or emotions. They possess no references to the natural world and thus stand out from nature/seasonal haiku.
