Hello there readers,
Today is National Haiku Poetry Day, a day that encourages everyone to be creative.
What’s a haiku, you ask?
Well, a haiku is a very short form of Japanese poetry that has only three lines in it. The first line should have 5 *syllables, the second line should have seven syllables and the third line should have five syllables.
*Syllables are the sounds you make when pronouncing a word. For example, “afternoon” has three syllables in it (af-ter-noon).
Here’s an example of a haiku:
Here’s the same poem broken down into syllables:
Haiku poems are usually about nature, a season, an experience or event.
To celebrate National Haiku Poetry Day, leave a comment below with your own haiku.
See you later!
