Life's a garden. Dig it.


This project contains a single file - haikus.txt - a collection of Haikus written by you. It starts with your first Haiku, Bugs :material-bug:.

cd path/to/parent/dir/
mkdir haiku && cd haiku
git init
echo "Bugs crawl through my code" > haikus.txt
echo "Destroying my work" >> haikus.txt
echo "I will fumigate" >> haikus.txt
git add haikus.txt
git commit -m "Completed Haiku: Bugs"

After completing your first Haiku, you begin work on a second one named Sunlight ☀️.

echo "" >> haikus.txt
echo "I yearn for sunlight" >> haikus.txt
echo "But here I code in the dark" >> haikus.txt

Clearly, you're still searching for that final phrase to complete your masterpiece. However, you notice a bug in your Bugs Haiku (lol, the irony 😆). The second line has 5 syllables instead of the required 7!
