Haiku

A haiku, or hokku, is a Japanese verse form composed, in English versions, of three unrhymed lines of five, seven, and five syllables. A haiku often features an image meant to depict the essence of a specific moment in time.

Here’s an attempt at one by me:

My old dog lay still,
One eye open as he slept,
Snoring peacefully.
