  • Now that we know the rules of poetry. Here they are in terms of the Haiku.
  • These are some Haikus that are on Youtube. They are very traditional in style.
  • These Haiku writers are reciting their own Haikus. These are regular people who write poetry.
  • I wrote this Haiku when I took my first creative writing class at Parkway Central.
  • Remember, the first line is five syllables of this moment in time. The next line is 7 syllables and the last line is another five syllables. In the last two line or in the last line, tell me how you feel about this image.
  • These are the most often asked questions about Haikus.
  • Are there any questions? I will be happy to discuss this with you after class. Thank you.
