Fun for Friday - Real Estate Haiku

Real Estate Haiku

What is haiku?

Haiku is a poetry format that has its origins in Japan. Haikus are three line poems with a 5, 7, and 5 syllable pattern.

Why haikus?

Haikus were a local favorite in The Anchorage Press. They had an annual haiku contest open to the public. I used to enjoy reading them. Here are the 2013 contest entries. I decided to have a little fun with haikus and write some about real estate and some of the situations real estate salespeople run into.
