First for the year

Dusty Town

Long 3-5-3

A dusty town
streets are dirt and mud
no grass grows

Short 2-3-2

Mud streets
horses churn dirt
flies buzz

Traditional 5-7-5
(same number of syllables as in Japanese)

In a dusty street
flies buzz about horses ears
the sun bakes the dirt

Freeform
(just use a short phrase a longer one and a short one again)

The dusty town
is filled with dry men and women
baking in the sun
