Brilliant light you shine.

The truth I can never find.

Destiny of life.

Writing 201, Day 1: Screen, Haiku, Alliteration

There’s a 100% chance that you’re currently looking at the comforting, addictive, inescapable glow of a screen. Screens are everywhere in our life, not in the least when we read and write (and blog).
Today, write a poem about/against/in homage to the screens in your life.

Try using today’s form and/or device in the service of your verse.

Today’s form: Haiku

The structure of haiku is preset for you: three lines containing five, seven, and five syllables, respectively (or, in more modern haiku, three lines following the long-short-long pattern):

first line goes here.

The second one is longer.

Then it’s short again.

Today’s device, alliteration, is all about using the same consonant multiple times in close proximity: think “Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer,” or “Take me down to the Paradise City where the grass is green and the girls are pretty” (thanks, Axl!).
