Haiku Poetry



Do You Haiku?



Have you ever heard of Haiku poetry?

Oh, what fun!

Sometimes I just daydream and try to invent different Haiku poems.

Here’s one of mine:

Clover meadow bed
Marshmallow clouds over head
Daydreams take me ‘way

Haiku poetry originated in Japan. There are only 3 lines.

Line one containing 5 syllables.
Line two has 7 syllables.
And line three has 5 syllables again.

It isn’t necessary for the Haiku to rhyme. Your goal is to paint a picture in the mind of your reader. I personally like when mine rhyme, but you don't have to.

Try it.

Can you make your reader visualize your thoughts by writing only
3 lines – 17 syllables?

Here’s mine again. This time, I separated the syllables for you to see:

Clo ver mea dow bed
Marsh mal low clouds o ver head
Day dreams take me ‘way

Did you understand how I felt?
What I was thinking about?
Would you like to try?



How did you do?

Writing Haiku poetry is not only educational, it's alot of fun.
