The Haiku below is inspired by Erin Lane.
A Haiku is a Japanese poem that does not rhyme.
It is a poem that describes something in nature.
Haiku poems have three lines, with a certain number of syllables in each line.
Line 1 = 5 syllables
Line 2 = 7 syllables
Line 3 = 5 syllables
Roaring waves crash down on me
Floating in the foam
Sand scatters the beach
Waves crash on the sandy shore
Blue water shimmers
First, think of a topic about nature. Think about the things that you have seen outside. Close your eyes and picture a moment outside and everything around you. Below, write down what you see and hear.
What in nature are you describing? ____________________________
Write down what you ‘see’ and ‘hear’: ____________________________ ___________________________________________________________ ___________________________________________________________ ___________________________________________________________
Now, make that shorter choosing less words: _____________________ __________________________________________________________ __________________________________________________________
Finally, fit it into three lines with the right amount of syllables:
_______________________________________________5 syllables _______________________________________________ 7 syllables _______________________________________________ 5 syllables
Pick a headline and write your Haiku on the computer. You may use Canva.com if you want to.
