Beluga Haikus

On Deck Beluga Cam
While working on the Beluga cams, the Captain worked with one of the interns to come up with an Haiku after I looked up the format for them -- 3 phrases, 1st line 5 syllables, line 2 7 and line 3 5.

I also took it on as a challenge for myself and came up with this.

Our sea canaries
For us all Beluga songs
Music to our ears

As a parting farewell to our zodiac Captain for a wonderful season, I wrote another after Hayley expressed the memory she will keep after a baby beluga sprayed her with its breathe...

Baby sees Hayley
Beluga breathe kiss for her
Treasured memory

After reading more about the qualities of a haiku, new ones will hopefully be more than just the 5-7-5 format.

Have you ever tried coming up with haiku or just poetry?
