keen kind kakapo
keeping katydids knocking
king kauri, kudos
Authors Note – The kakapo or night owl is a species of large, flightless, nocturnal, ground-dwelling parrot of New Zealand. It is critically endangered; as of April 2018, the total known adult population was 149, surviving kakapo are kept on three predator-free islands.
Katydids are a type of insect, found on branches of trees or bushes and are most active at night and sing in the evening, so this is where my haiku comes from the Kakapo are nocturnal, keeping the katydids from sleeping so they keep knocking (other words rubbing there forelegs together) singing to each other.
The King Kauri is a large tree growing in New Zealand where the kakapo could be living in the underground around them, nicely finishing the haiku (Kudos).
Hope you liked my story about the writing for this week Alphabet Haiku.
- Every word in the haiku must begin with the same letter.
- When written in English, it generally follows the syllabic pattern 5-7-5
- Haiku/Senryu Poetry – Here is an in-depth description of Haiku/Senryu Poem (also called human haiku) is an unrhymed Japanese verse consisting of three unrhymed lines of five, seven, and five syllables (5, 7, 5) or 17 syllables in all. Senryu is usually written in the present tense and only references to some aspect of human nature or emotions. They possess no references to the natural world and thus stand out from nature/seasonal haiku.
