Haiku

Haiku

A Lesson by BuffyWillowDawnAngelGilesSpike
"

The third poem we'll be learning.

"

This is a Japanese poem. To learn it, you first must know a syllable. A syllable occurs in a word whenever you move your chin down as you say it.
Me-1
Never-2
Syllable-3
Amiable-4
Creativity-5
And so on...
A haiku is made up of three lines like this (Number of syllables)
5
7
5
It doesn't have to rhyme, but it sometimes sounds better.
Ex.
Haiku's are easy,
Once you learn it's so breezy,
That rhymes with squeezy!
See, it's fun! Plus it's easy to write quickly, so if you have an idea you're about to lose, you can memorize it in haiku form to use later! Try it for tests, if you're still in school, or for your grocery list! If you can't think of something to rhyme go through each letter of the alphabet till you find something. Just don't use orange.

Never thought of rhyming my Haiku lines, probably because I love free verse so much. I also think like you; Haiku is Haiku, as long as the syllables are in order. But I have learned an important and useful fact; traditional Haiku is always about nature. Here at WC, I also learned that if the poem is NOT about nature, it's probably a Senryu. Enjoyed your lesson.
