Haiku Poetry

  1. 1. Haiku Poetry <ul><li>Haiku (HI-coo) </li></ul><ul><li>Haiku is a poetic form and a type of poetry from the Japanese culture. It </li></ul><ul><li>combines form, content, and language in a meaningful, yet compact form. Haiku </li></ul><ul><li>poets, which you will soon be, write about everyday things. Many themes include </li></ul><ul><li>nature, feelings, or experiences. Usually they use simple words and grammar. </li></ul><ul><li>The most common form for Haiku is three short lines. The first line usually contains five (5) syllables, </li></ul><ul><li>the second line seven (7) syllables, </li></ul><ul><li>and the third line contains five (5) syllables. </li></ul><ul><li>Haiku doesn't rhyme. A Haiku must &quot;paint&quot; a mental image in the reader's mind. </li></ul><ul><li>This is the challenge of Haiku - to put the poem's meaning and imagery in the reader's mind in ONLY 17 syllables over just three (3) lines of poetry! </li></ul>
  2. 2. The Rose <ul><li>The red blossom bends </li></ul><ul><li>and drips its dew to the ground. </li></ul><ul><li>Like a tear it falls </li></ul><ul><li>Donna Brock </li></ul>
  3. 3. A Rainbow <ul><li>Curving up, then down. </li></ul><ul><li>Meeting blue sky and green earth </li></ul><ul><li>Melding sun and rain. </li></ul><ul><li>Donna Brock </li></ul>
  4. 4. Some fun ones from Microsoft! <ul><li>Your file was so big. </li></ul><ul><li>It might be very useful. </li></ul><ul><li>But now it is gone. </li></ul>With searching comes loss and the presence of absence: &quot;My Novel&quot; not found. Serious error. All shortcuts have disappeared. Screen. Mind. Both are blank.
  5. 5. History and examples <ul><li>Website links </li></ul><ul><li> </li></ul><ul><li> </li></ul><ul><li> </li></ul>
  6. 6. Patterns and structure <ul><li>Mark the syllables in these poems. If you are having trouble figuring out how many syllables, try clapping out the words, or putting your hand under your chin and counting how many times your chin goes down. If all else fails, get a dictionary! :) </li></ul>
  7. 7. <ul><li>Now its your turn. Pick your favorite sport or activity. This will be your theme. </li></ul><ul><li>Decide: </li></ul><ul><li>1) For what purpose will you write? </li></ul><ul><li>2) What mood do you want to convey? </li></ul><ul><li>Think of the images, descriptive words, and figurative language that best describe that sport or activity (remember sounds, smells, sights). Jot them down in web form or as you think of them. Then the final step is to experiment by putting your ideas on the Haiku &quot;skeleton&quot; - 5, 7, 5 (syllables) and 3 lines. </li></ul>
  8. 8. <ul><li>Look at your poem, check it for correct syllables and lines. Now, for the real test, read it ALOUD. Does it really paint a clear picture? </li></ul><ul><li>Share your Haiku with someone else. Listen to their critique of your poem. A critique is when someone tells you the strengths and weaknesses of your work. DON'T GET MAD, LISTEN to the suggestions. </li></ul><ul><li>Revise your work. Remember, the BEST writers are REWRITERS! </li></ul>
  9. 9. More Haiku <ul><li>After you have looked at the examples from the listed websites, write two more haiku poems. You may write on any subject that you wish – you may even like to write your own computer one! </li></ul>
  10. 10. Your Portfolio <ul><li>So far you have written several poems </li></ul><ul><li>Your responses to the art work we saw at the Gallery </li></ul><ul><li>Simile and Metaphor Poems </li></ul><ul><li>Your haiku poems </li></ul><ul><li>Create an electronic portfolio for your poetry. You may use any program you think is suitable. Put in your best poems – (this may be all of them) or just one or two. Write a brief explanation which informs me of the subject of the poem, the type of poem it is, how you went about writing it and what you think of the finished piece. </li></ul><ul><li>Choose an appropriate font and colour. Illustrate your poem if you wish. </li></ul><ul><li>This portfolio will form part of your assessment for Term 3. </li></ul>
