Cover Haiku Sheet

  1. 1. A haiku is a Japanese form of poetry. It is a short verse form. You are limited to a few syllables. A syllable is a part of a word which has a specific sound, so 'sound' has one syllable, but 'syllable' has three syllables. We are going to use a 17 syllable form. You can't use any more or less than 17 syllables. You should write a three line poem. You could use your syllables like this: 5-5-7 or 5-7-5. e.g. Look at the picture below, which shows a landscape in the Fens Identify one aspect of the landscape that you are going to try to capture. A haiku tries to tell a story, paint a picture or capture a moment. It doesn't have enough syllables to fully describe everything in a complicated picture. I'm going to focus on the rapeseed. It's yellow. Here are some possible first lines: A field of yellow
  2. 2. Lemon coloured crops Colour of the sun Yellow plants growing Brightly coloured fields Now the background: Draws the eye it is so bright Dark shadows in the background Glows brightly in the sunshine And finish with the sky: Blue skies and grey clouds. Grey clouds float above Looks like rain coming Will it rain quite soon? NOW IT”S YOUR TURN! Create a PPT slide which has the poem on top of a nice, good quality landscape image. Aim for three different landscapes, each with a poem. Remember this is geography, so focus on the landscape, weather, crops, mountains, clouds etc. that might be in your photos... Please aim for CREATIVE and WELL THOUGHT OUT responses.
