The Beauty of Simplicity

Compose a haiku based on a simple, everyday object or scene.

Haikus, a form of traditional Japanese poetry, often focus on ordinary things imbued with deeper meaning. Choose a simple subject – a fallen leaf, a cup of tea, a light bulb – and paint it in a poetic light. The beauty in simplicity can be incredibly profound if we ponder it. What hidden meanings or feelings can you associate with your chosen object? How can it mirror bigger themes – life cycles, peace, creativity?
