The way I write Haiku is using the 5-7-5 syllable combination . I also often write more than one verse. It is an option . not a rule. Enjoy the fun and creativity of 1st) viewing the short film . 2nd) looking for your Haiku and creating it 3rd) sharing it if you so desire.

What should be a discreet soirée of the bourgeoisie quickly descends into chaos as the (mostly) genteel guests one-up each other with dramatic announcements and secrets bubble over until everything bursts.

“Stingingly funny … conceived during the 2015 election, filmed over a fortnight during the Brexit referendum, The Party eviscerates a political class that has lost its way.” – Evening Standard

Anonymous Viewer:
” . . . 5/5 Excellent. Wonderful acting, wonderful directing, wonderful cinematography, very sharp and funny writing. The audience at the cinema I was at burst into applause when the credits rolled, which is something I have not seen for a while.”

Mesmerizing storms crashing
Winds swirl unexpected

Clouds excel in dance

A Heartfelt Note from Mike Olbinski:

On June 12th, I broke down into tears. Minutes earlier, I had been outside my truck, leaning against it, head buried in my arms, frustration and failure washing over me. I wanted to quit. I got back in the car and as I drove, the pain got the better of me and the tears came.

This past spring was a tough one. Supercell structure and beautiful tornadoes had been very hard to come by. In fact, the tornado in the opening of this film was the only good one I saw this entire year. I had been on the road longer than ever before. Driven more miles. I was away from my family for 12 straight days at one point, and when I got home, I had to tell them I was going back out 24 hours later for June 12th. It was just too good to pass up. It promised to be a day that I could get everything I had been hoping for this spring and I had no choice. My wife understood, even though I knew she wished I stayed home. And I wished it too.
