The Friday Blog

Blog Post created by bhalle on May 15, 2015

As a technical writer, I often drop the "technical" on the weekends and get creative. Since it's Friday, the following is a lighthearted LimeHow tidbit on ways that you can do the same.

 

Haiku is a traditional Japanese form of poetry. It traditionally has a structure (in English) of three lines kept to 5 syllables, 7 syllables and 5 again for the final line. Like the Limelight network, Haiku is clean and efficient and one is encouraged to be inventive and original. The goal is to "capture and distill a fleeting image" just like Instagram. See, you thought Haiku was old stuff.

 

There are two guides to creating a moving Haiku.

1. Show a juxtaposition such as something large with something small.

2. Illustrate how the environment relates to the human condition.

Now go to your weekend with creative purpose. Send me your Haiku in comments and it may make next Friday's blog.
