My First Haiku: Stillness of Silence

For the uninitiated (like I was until a couple of days ago), a Haiku is a Japanese poem containing 17 syllables with three lines in a 5-7-5 format. There are also other technicalities of a traditional Haiku – I am no expert, and probably don’t intend to be but I thought I’ll take a shot at it.

Some of the best Haikus can be found all over the internet, mostly from traditional Japanese poets. And without much ado here’s mine!

Stillness of silence,
Then the chaos of a scream
And silence again.
