A Haiku #atozchallenge

~ Shot into the air ~
~ but where will it fall to earth? ~
~ The poet knows not ~

Welcome to my first post in the A to Z Blogging Challenge for 2018! I’m offering a haiku puzzle for each letter of the alphabet in April. A haiku is a tiny poem based on a Japanese model, with three unrhymed lines of 5, 7, 5 syllables. Traditionally a haiku expresses a fleeting image or feeling, often focusing on nature or seasons, but mine expresses a single word. Can you figure out today’s puzzle? What word starts with A that is suggested by the haiku? Tell us your guess in the comments, and thanks for playing!

~ Do you like puzzles? ~
~ Do you like tiny poems? ~
~ Then this is for you ~

~ Find clues to a word ~

~ That is my challenge to you ~
~ Starting in April ~

The A to Z Blogging Challenge is back, and I’m participating for the third year in a row. One day in April will be dedicated to each of the 26 letters of the alphabet, and bloggers are invited to post something related to that letter. My theme is, once again, haiku puzzles. Each day I’ll have a short poem following the haiku pattern, with lines of five, seven, and five syllables. The poem will describe a word that starts with the letter of the day. Your mission: to figure out the word described by the puzzle.

The A to Z challenge for 2018 begins on Sunday April 1. (No fooling!)

See you there!
