Write a 5-7-5 haiku today and tomorrow.

West Fargo, ND – Yes, it is once again National Haiku Day!

These are those short 5-7-5 syllable poems that made China famous.

We here at the FM Observer use haiku poems as our standard default method of inter-office communication each and every day.

We’ll show you some of our haikus if you show us yours.

To get the ball rolling, here are some of our haikus, on this National Haiku Poetry Day:

Line one of haiku
We’re into line number two
Third and final line

This is a haiku
Now it is almost over
How did you like it?

Are you ready yet?
Tomorrow is not today
Become the sunrise

My dog is Fido
And my cat’s name is Felix
My car is Otto

A pair of Shih Tzus
It seems like a great idea
After many beers

If you drink and drive
Make sure that what you’re drinking
Is just H 2 O

If fences don’t work
Then why do they have a fence
Around the White House?

Sanders and Clinton
Both stand for Big Government
Hello George Orwell

Went 2 math camp once
8 equations 4 dinner
Number of friends there

This is a haiku
It is almost finished now
Let’s write another!

As a Life Coach, some lessons I like to pass onto others are: 1. don't stare at strangers, especially in jail, 2. don't leave fun to find fun, 3. never pet a burning dog, 4. don't eat more than you can lift, and 5. when in doubt, jot it down.
