It's Spring, and as we start to stare out the windows, we allow ourselves to get creative...Okay, we saw this on the internet and thought it would be fun to do for our town. Back in school, we were sometimes tasked with some creative writing, from poems and short stories to even a haiku or two. In years past, cities across the country sprouted up Twitter pages devoted to haikus about their area.

The simple 5-7-5 syllable poems are easy to understand, and can be fun to make. Even if you're not really good at rhyming, counting syllables is much easier. Topics of haikus have a wide range of persons, places or things that can be created. With the upcoming hurricane season, not-so-recent crawfish prices and even athletics programs in the area finding success, it's definitely easier to make a haiku than a left turn on Johnston. Here's a few that we came up with in about 3 minutes. PLEASE add yours in the comments below:
