How well can you describe an entire album, film, or book in only 3 lines of exactly 5 syllables, 7 syllables, and 5 syllables?
This is Haiku Reviewer – a collection of reviews in the style of Japanese ‘haiku’ poems.
For example, can you include some background on a band, something about one of their albums, and also include a review of whether you think it’s any good or not?
Can you fit all this into such a small space?
That’s the challenge.
If you look closely you’ll see that all of the reviews on this site are in haiku format.
It may take you a while to write your first one, but after that you may find that just keep thinking of them!
Submissions and comments are welcome – enjoy!
