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!).
