What an evening! I gaze out my window at the twilight cutting through the birch trees in my yard. Such ethereal beauty! But how can my words evoke this image? I turn to the haiku, a traditional Japanese form of poetry that contains 17 syllables across three lines and often deals with images of nature. The haiku’s brevity and strict form force me to use my words precisely and economically. It is a challenge, to be sure, but one worthy of the stunning scene before me.
