[ed-S: senior haikus are coming]

Dear Readers of MGoBlog,

I have read Brian's twitter reactions, and I hope to help improve the MGoBlog community through improved board content.

Haikus are almost certainly MGoBlog's poetry form of choice. These are generally viewed as three lines of poetry following a 5-7-5 syllable pattern. However, I have come across a fantastic resource that discusses why this form does not have to be followed precisely (link). A few other pointers from the website:

1. Haikus tend to examine the thing which caused an emotion and not the emotion itself.

2. Haikus, while not following a 5-7-5 structure precisely, are still sparingly worded and are written in three lines.

3. February is National Haiku Writing Month.

I hope this enriches your poetry and improves the board!
