An interesting challenge from ‘Haiku Bombers’ to write Haiku using alternate open and closed syllables. These are defined as:
Closed Syllables: A closed syllable has one and only one vowel, and it ends in a consonant. Examples include in, ask, truck, sock, stretch, twelfth, and on.
Open Syllables: An open syllable has one and only one vowel, and that vowel occurs at the end of the syllable. Examples include no, she, I, a, and spry.
So here goes:
I don’t mean to pry,
but isn’t that glass your twelfth –
‘piss off’ is the cry
he wanted to ask
what it was that made her cry –
but she’d never tell
in his silky web,
the spider watched the fly –
almost time for lunch
