Haikus and Movies

I found a really fun post where the writer summarised Disney movies…in haikus!

Just to clarify, a haiku is a Japanese form of poetry in which a stanza has a line of 5 syllables followed by a line of 7 and a line of 5.

Anyway, I was inspired to try some of my own:

Tale as old as time:
Twisted stairs light darkened hearts
She came back and fought

She trimmed and replaced;
Her weakness was not herself
But their ignorance

And all the lanterns
Were not stars but dreams because
They defied the night

My challenge to you is to ‘Haiku-up’ some of your favourite films! Also, if you can guess which three I described (they’re all Disney) you may have bonus points. I’d love to see what you come up with!

Thanks for reading, and have a lovely day!
