Months ago an author friend of mine, Mallory Rowe, inspired me to write a haiku and after not writing one since probably middle school gifted English class, I finally did it.

Seeing the Christmas lights through the eyes of my baby boy inspired me to write.

Goodnight pretty lights

Her sweet boy rests his head down

Their twinkling remains

I have to say, it was a fun challenge to write in this 5-7-5 syllable format and something I may continue to do for fun.

How about you? Want to try one? Share it with me!
