Collection of Haiku

Updated on January 9, 2017

How to Write Haiku Poetry

I find writing Haiku to be very healing and enjoyable. If you want to start writing in Haiku form, here are the simple instructions:

Haiku is a Japanese verse in three lines. Line one has 5 syllables, line 2 has 7 syllables and line three has 5 syllables. Haiku is a mood poem and it doesn't use any metaphors or similes.

Haiku

Breathe in summer smells

Fragrant odor of blossoms

Crab-Apple Heaven







Soft Cuddly Pup

Sweet and loyal canine friend

Likes licking my face






Bitter Winter Months

Slippery ice cold sidewalks

Snowy day brings joy

















'Poetry is the spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings: it takes its origin from emotion recollected in tranquillity.'

— William Wordsworth

    Yes, the Haiku poetry was lovely and I particularly liked the stunning photo of the crab apple tree. Voted up except for funny.

    You can so do this:) Just remember it's three lines. The first line has 5 syllables, 2nd line 7 and 3rd line has 5. I'll be waiting... :)

    Bellawritter-Sorry, I never got back to you. Anyhoo, haiku is very simple. The whole idea of a haiku is short and simple. It is written in three lines, the first and third line is five syllables and the second line is 7 syllables. Once you write one Haiku, you'll be hooked. Give it a try. Good luck:)

    Hi Nikki-I agree about Haikus. They say so much in so little. I almost think it is more powerful than other types because of it. Thanks for reading my work, it means a lot to me coming from such a gifted poet.
