Vista

Sun’s touring uphill

Enjoying the grand vista

I tread down the hill

Photo for the prompt (from scvincent.com)

This is my first attempt at writing a haiku. Accidentally, it also has the usage of a linguistic device ‘Apo Koinou’.

Haiku: It is a type of short poetry form. A traditional Japanese haiku is a three-line poem with seventeen syllables, written in a 5/7/5 syllable count across 3 lines.

Apo Koinou: It denotes the occurrence of one and the same word or word group, not repeated, in two constructions. It is similar to the rhetorical devices ‘syllepsis’ and ‘zeugma’. 

Here, the entire phrase (line 2) can be read together with each of the remaining 2 phrases, as follows:

  • Sun’s touring uphill enjoying the grand vista
  • Enjoying the grand vista, I tread down the hill

This post is written in response to the ‘Thursday #writephoto Photo Prompt by Sue Vincent.

To know more about the prompt, go through the guidelines, on her blog.
