Haiku (pronounced hi-coo) is a form of poetry that originated in Japan. Traditionally, haiku poetry was written to describe things in nature. However, I feel haiku poetry can be about anything you want. Many poets would agree.
While there are several styles of haiku, the most popular style is the "5-7-5" style. That means, there are 5 syllables in the first line, 7 syllables in the second line, and 5 syllables in the third line.
An example would be...
I like to use haiku poetry in a traditional manner to describe the beauty of the world around me. I also like to use it as a means of describing feelings, mine or someone else's. When you shift your mind into haiku mode, it can help lift "brain fog"...making it easier to think outside of the box when doing homework, studying, or creating something.
Try it! You'll love it!
