What Is A Haiku?👀

“Haiku (俳句, listen (help·info)) is a type of short form poetry originally from Japan. Traditional Japanese haiku consist of three phrases composed of 17 phonetic units (called on in Japanese, which are similar to syllables) in a 5, 7, 5 pattern;[1] that include a kireji, or “cutting word”;[2] and a kigo, or seasonal reference. Similar poems that do not adhere to these rules are generally classified as senryū.[3]” – Wikipedia

So, basically when writing a Haiku, it’s usually about Nature. Each line is in syllables:

Line 1: 5 syllables

Line 2: 7 syllables

Line3: 5 syllables

Try It! We created one for you below, in honor of International Haiku Poetry Day!
