LANSING, Ill. (August 27, 2019) – “I wrote this five/seven/five seventeen-syllable haiku especially for the Lansing Journal’s Haiku Project,” wrote Valentina Ranaldi-Adams. “I usually write Modern English Language Haiku, which does not use this form.”
We are pleased that our little writing project has encouraged creative people to explore new forms of creativity, and we share Valentina’s haiku below.
summer in full bloom –
purple irises that did
not survive winter
