#29: Haiku

A brief definition of what a Haiku is: “It’s a Japanese poem made of 17 syllables divided into 3 lines, one of 5, one of seven and one of 5, that traditionally revolve around nature as it is. So I’ve tried to whip something up and here’s mine:

“Apotheosis,

An utter endless desert,

Silent… Witnessing”

I think that this kind of topics is really interesting because it kind of challenges the writer’s level and his vocabulary in a way that pushes him to acquire even more than he already knows, and moments like those (where you find yourself obliged to become something more) are some of the most important ones in anyone’s life (even if it’s apart from writing) because that’s proof that you’re learning and evolving as a thinker, I mean, after all, thinking is what makes humans what they are.
