The Joy of Haiku

Posted on Updated on

I am so excited because I’ve just discovered the joy of haiku!

Haiku is a really simple three line, 17 syllable poem.    haiku image how to

Here is how to do it:

First line:  5 syllables

Second line: 7 syllables

Third line: 5 syllables

The possibilities are really endless for haiku poems.

Here are the two poems that I wrote today:

Words are powerful

They can bring joy or sorrow

Words can change your mind.

Writing is a strong urge

It comes when you’re busy or free

When it comes I write.

Have you dabbled in this form of poetry? If not,try it.  But be careful, it’s addicting:-)
