A Haiku, “Therapy”

Love and laughter here
Despite the fear of Covid
- this is therapy

A haiku is a short poem originally from Japan. It consists of only three lines. The first and third line are only five syllables whereas the second is seven syllables. It’s simple structure lends itself well to anyone who wants to try their hand at poetry without worrying about metre, rhyme and meaning.

As for the poem, I wrote it about a year ago. Some friends of mine that I meet online to write and discuss poetry put it on ourselves to explore other types of poems besides the conventional free verse form we all know and love. This was my contribution.
