What is a haiku?
A traditional poem
That has three phrases
Haikus are a short form of Japanese poetry that consists of three lines (or phrases) that follows a specific format: The first and last lines have five syllables and the second line has seven. It doesn’t even have to rhyme. That’s it!
“What’s a syllable?” you ask. Just put your hand underneath your chin. Every time you feel your chin move down, that is a syllable.
Head outside, and look from inspiration from your surroundings. Is it the quick moving clouds, a chirping bird, or budding branch that speaks to you?
