About Haiku

Haiku is a form of Japanese poetry. Each poem consists of three lines with five syllables in the first line, seven syllables in the second line, and five in the third line. Here are some examples I’ve written. Take a few minutes, and try it yourself. Creating in this way is interesting and fun. As you are thinking about your 17 syllables, click on the photos below to see who made each item and to see what else the shops have to officer. You will be glad you did!
