What is a haiku? It’s an unrhymed verse most commonly with three short lines:
Line 1 – 5 syllables
Line 2 – 7 syllables
Line 3 – 5 syllables

The challenge of Haiku is to convey meaning and imagery in such a short form. Possible subjects of EQ-Haiku: quilts, EQ, software, computers, sewing.

A sample EQ-Haiku from EQ the Mouse:
Penny’s desk my home
Her monitor my window
EQ quilts await

“Speaking of haiku… we got the idea from Do You EQ? Artist Gyleen Fitzgerald who runs haiku contests all the time. One of Gyleen’s other books is called In This House. There was a really cute kids patchwork project. They used Gyleen’s paper piecing house (they did raw edge) and wrote a haiku beginning with the words “in this house”. So cute.”
