I was reading some of your haikus... and they were really captivating.. I read the article about Haiku and read what wiki had to say.. I too wish to try this put sometime... and when I finally come up with it, I would want u to give your judgements (honest ones)..

I will surely try this sometime...

btw, how do u go about with the 17 syllables thingie.. I mean do u really count.. what do u mean by syllables... as in I know what it means but is it the sounds that are counted or certain words..

Nalini Hebbar said...

captivating has cap-ti-va-ting...4 syllables.
Do try could send it my email on my profile and I will help you edit it...quite happily too...:)

*jumping with joy*

yay..!! I would surely try then... :)

btw I have one question.. What is the first step.. as in do u select a picture and then put emotions and expressions into it or is it the other way round..??

Nalini Hebbar said...

I guess it can be done both ways...but I write my haiku and then find a picture for try
