HAIKU Butterflies are cool in the big, huge, green forest. They fly up so high!
Haiku  is a poetic form and a type of poetry from the Japanese culture.   Haiku  combines  form ,  content , and  language  in a meaningful, yet compact form.
Haiku… write about everyday things.  Many themes include nature, feelings, or experiences.  Usually they use simple words and  grammar .  The most common form for Haiku is three short lines.  The first line usually contains five (5) syllables, the second line seven (7) syllables, and the third line contains five (5) syllables.
Haiku doesn't rhyme.   A Haiku must "paint" a mental image in the reader's mind.   This is the challenge of Haiku - to put the poem's meaning and imagination in the reader's mind in   ONLY 17 syllables over just three (3) lines of poetry
HOW TO WRITE HAIKU? STEP 1. BRAINSTORM YOUR IDEAS  - Pick a topic of interest.  - Brainstorm words that associate with this topic.  - Make a good list so that this will provide you with a word bank for your haiku.  - Now that you have your word bank, lets start your haiku. - The haiku consists of 3 lines.  - The first line contains 5 syllables.  - The second line consists of 7 syllables.  - The third line consists of 5 syllables.  - YOU MUST FOLLOW THIS FORMAT!  STEP 2. FORMAT YOUR HAIKU.
STEP 3.  MESSAGES OF HAIKU   - The haiku conveys a short message - Rhyme is not important    - Although it may make your poem sound more harmonious when read aloud  Here is another example of Haiku : I walk in the park,  The park is very windy,  I lost my old hat
Sample of HAIKU A fat bee stings me, It hurts very badly but, I do not cry though. Ladybugs are red, And have black spots on their wings. Experts at flying. The bee flies quickly. It turns around and stings me. Then falls to the ground. Moths go flying by. They are very beautiful, Fluttering around.
