What is a Haiku?
A haiku is an unrhymed three-line poem. It is based on a traditional Japanese
poetic form. Though there are different ways to write haiku, the traditional
pattern in English is to write the first and last lines with five syllables
each, and the middle line with seven syllables. In other words, the pattern of
syllables looks like this.
Snowflakes are our friends
They descend when winter comes
Making white blankets
Line 1: 5 syllables
Line 2: 7 syllables
Line 3: 5 syllables
