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.
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.
Here are some possible first lines:
A field of yellow
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!
