Good day! Today we'll learn about writing Haikus.
A Haiku is a type of poem that is composed of 3 lines and a syllabic pattern of at most 5-7-5. No rhyming is necessary. Haikus use strong and moving imagery of nature as motif to express concepts such as love, change, and death.
Let's look at three examples from the video below.
As you listen to each piece, ask yourself the following questions:
1. What is the subject of the Haiku?
2. What is the theme of the Haiku?
Here is an embedded video for more tips:
This concludes the sample lesson. I hope you've enjoyed.
Do you have a favorite Haiku? Or maybe you've tried writing one yourself?
