Two Birds of a Feather

My Shadow and I

Striding alongside – asphalt

Bound – sigh, and leap on.


This is my first attempt at writing haiku. I would love to know what you think of it.

I would also very much enjoy reading some of your haiku poetry. Feel free to share your thoughts and words in the comment section below.

Love, ❤

Hailie.


What Is an Haiku?

  1. Haiku is a form of Japanese poetry.
  2. When modelled in English, a haiku is formed of 3 lines adding up to a total count of 17 syllables. (5-7-5)
  3. It supposed to be simple, intense, and direct.
  4. A Haiku is composed of:
  • 2 elements drawn from every day life (images/ideas/objects) and exposed side by side,
  • and a cutting word – usually a verbal element – which links the former items together. This “kireji” (=cutting word) sets their relation to one another and exposes the context of their reunion.

        Haiku is a great way to work on being succinct with poetry and thought in my opinion. Very profound things arise from its simplicity. Let me know if you would like to know some haiku blogs to read.
