I Haiku… Do You?

Posted on

Haiku poetry was once part of ancient Japanese courtship rituals. A man would send a haiku to a woman they loved. It is a discipline form of poetry made popular by the Japanese poet Basho.

A haiku uses nature as its primary focus.

It captures a moment in nature or life and freezes it in time.

It consists of 3 lines, seventeen syllables and is not usually rhymed.

Line 1 – 5 syllables

Line 2 – 7 syllables

Line 3 – 5 syllables

                 Here is mine:            

As the rain moves in

I realize my sadness

Recess is indoors

    Splashing in the mud
    Comes the little kid playing
    Goes and falls and cries

    Running though the woods

    I pull out my bow

    Smashing through toilet paper

    Don’t worry, I’m fine.

    And the crowd goes wild sky high
    And out of the park

    There after me, why?
    Running from the demon bears
    Now safe in my tree.

    Animals are trapped
    Trapped in a zoo forever

    The snake is hiding
    It sees its prey rears up and
    It strikes with speed

    The cat sees its prey
    Stalks its prey till the prey stops
    Then pounces on it

    The bird is gliding
    It sees his prey a lake
    Then it dives with speed

    The cat is in here

    In the living room with me

    The cat is a pest

    Sitting on me with his claws

    Alexis said:

    Cats are fierce and strong
    When they are mad they are mean
    They will scratch and claw

    The snake is lurking

    Biting everything it can

    Injecting poison

    Killing it super slowly

    And then leaving it

    A big cat stalking

    About to leap on its prey

    Jumping in the air

    The prey starts to run away

    Dogs bark when happy and sad
    And howl when sad

    Up on the mountain
    Two beautiful mountain lions
    They were beautiful

    A tree filled forest
    Quite peaceful, beautiful and
    An owl hoots far away

    I get on the bus
    We approach a big building
    The building is school

    5. The snake as poison
    When it will bite the two preys
    It’s a king cobra.

    I write this poem
    For I don’t know what to do
    This poem is yours

    This haiku is fun
    So I have to write it fast
    So that I won’t fail

    This poem is bad
    I hope that I don’t fail
    That would make me sad

    Haikus are easy
    But sometimes they don’t make sense
