Haikus are easy
But sometimes they don’t make sense

I dislike Haikus
But they are a lot of fun

Please post the haiku rules too? I don’t remember them :blush:

And to think I started a haiku riddle thread a couple of years ago

5-7-5 ?

Haikus are any “poem” that follow the syllable format
5 syllables
7 syllables
5 syllables

Look into each of our haikus and you will notice each line has 5-7-5 format.

Thanks Ryan. I wanted to be sure because I don’t know the English syllable rules that well :wink:

The way I remember it is it is the number of times your chin drops when you say a word.


If you place your hand under your chin, as you say, ‘c’, ‘p’, ‘ra’, ‘di’, ‘o’ you will feel that your hand moves because your chin drops to say the next part of the word.

muscle all tense,
eyes blink and roll, hand is raised -
one single keypress

I have students that don’t know what syllables are.
That is a great way to explain it!

I don’t like Haiku;
Poems that rhyme, I do.
Haiku is boo hoo.

Apologies…I had just woken up…back to the drawing board.
