Welcome to Writing Wednesday! This is a weekly feature at Cask & Quill where we try out writing prompts, share our experiences and inspire and encourage each other to write. All experience levels are welcome! Check out the introductory post here.

Today’s Prompt:

Write a nature-themed haiku! 

A haiku is generally accepted to be a three-line poem, usually non-rhyming, of 17 syllables. These are broken into 5, 7 and 5 syllables, per respective line. For more explanation or examples, check out this previous Haiku post. Don’t stress out too much if the syllables aren’t exactly this pattern. This is the traditional Japanese form of Haiku, one that does not translate into English syllables in the same way.


Write or copy your haiku into the comment box below so we can be inspired by you! And/or take it to Instagram! Pair a photo with what you’ve written and share it using #QuillClub. Please tag me @caskandquill if you like!

If you’re not feeling up to sharing the haiku, that’s okay! You can still participate by checking in with a comment or sharing an IG photo of your notebook or something. Let us know how it went or what you learned from this week’s exercise!


Happy writing!
