I wrote about five of these haikus (because they’re addictive once you start trying them out) and will be posting them throughout the next week. I hope you guys enjoy them.
And if you want to take a crack at writing your own, romantic or platonic, tag them #haikus for strangers and I’ll check them out. :)
