Day 8: Today’s challenge is set by Ruth, 40, a teacher from Northeast England.

A haiku is a short poem, traditionally inspired by nature or the seasons. Today’s challenge invites you to experiment with describing the sounds and smells of a winter day… Write a ‘winter haiku.’ A haiku has three lines made up of five syllables, seven syllables then five syllables. Like this… Write five syllables

The next line should have seven

Mention the season

Challenges are about giving something new a go and celebrating the process, as well as the product. Try not to spend much longer than 5-10 minutes writing your poem – let’s create and see what happens! You might simply want to share what it made you think about, or how the experience was for you.
