Today’s haiku was written by Kobayashi Issa-

O snail

Climb Mount Fuji,

But slowly, slowly!

So, taking inspiration from the patient and determined snail observed by Kobayashi, this week’s (optional) theme is: a momentary lesson.

Think, when have you observed a brief moment in time that taught you something? It could be poignant or uplifting, silly or profound. Write a 5/7/5 syllable poem telling the tale. (As always, the theme is optional, if you’d prefer to write about something else, go for it!)
