I Write Her Weekly Haiku/Senryu Challenge #19 – 2nd Attempt

This is the original haiku I wrote. If I have to confess, I prefer the original one rather than the one in second attempt because of the mirror parallel – I’m a big sucker for it. But at least, after a couple of friends pointed out that the last line contains 6 syllables rather than 5, I’m glad to announce “rhythm” is generally accepted as 2-syllable word 😀

Back story: my mind is in the gutter these days and I’m too tired to even figure out the number of syllables in a word. And this is also when howmanysyllables.com failed me because it listed “rhythm” as 1-syllable word…

If you are interested, the prompt is linked below.

  1. I also enjoyed the first one! But thank you for following the rules, Tien. 🙂 BTW, I usually go to Google and enter “define (whatever the word is I’m confused about the syllable count) and it shows the count in the definition. Hope that helps! Thanks for participating!

    • Yup, me too! I’m glad I’m not the only one 🙂 I didn’t know about that! I use howmanysyllables.com whenever confusion ensues. I’ll be sure to check that out in future!
