Transcript

  • 1. Haiku Poems
  • 2. What is Haiku? haiku is a form of poetry that originated in Japan. Haikus typically have three lines that follow a five-/seven-/five-syllable format.
  • 3. What do you notice about Haiku?  Short: Haiku are very short poems! They are usually written in three (or fewer) lines. Haiku can be written in the traditional pattern of 5-7-5 syllables but they do not have to be.  One moment in time: Haiku generally describe one brief moment in time. For example, “one tombstone with a crow” tells us only about the moment of noticing the crow; we do not need to know what happened before or after.  Images: The poems contain sensory images (not only visual, but involving other senses as well). For example, “echoes of laughter” and “metallic taste.”
  • 4. What do you notice about Hiaku?  Seasonal references: You can often tell what season it is by the references in the poem. For example, “the coarse wool of my blanket” tells us it is probably winter.  Everyday language: Haiku generally contain common everyday words. Nothing fancy or complicated!  Surprise: There is often a break or shift in the poem which creates a moment of surprise or sudden awareness. This is often called the “aha” moment.
