Haiku: The Arrival

Ok so my good friend Rob, over at Rob’s Surf Report has started a Haiku challenge.

I have to be honest and say I had no idea what a Haiku was and I have to be even more honest and say that after reading the instructions, I am still at a bit of a loss. For regular readers of my blog, you will already know I am not the most learned when it comes to grammar and all things writing in general, I tend to err more towards the fly by the seat of my pants approach!

So never one to pass up a challenge, or a gentle nudge via a comment (damn you Rob!!) Here’s my attempt. If it’s wrong don’t judge me, I have the satisfaction of saying I tried!

So the genre for this month is: Genre Haiku Challenge: Science Fiction

The Arrival

Flashing lights approach

Ripping past shining bright stars

Hurry they’re here!


This may be my first and last venture into the world of Haiku!
