Haiku Poetry

What is a Haiku poem? Coming from the Japanese, Haiku poetry is a patterned poem using syllables to express feeling and emotion. Most, if not all, of these poems are written about a nature topic. The first line has 5 syllables, followed by 7 syllables in the second line, and ending with 5 syllables in the third line. The following are some of the poems your students wrote.
