Haiku Poems

Today in E.L.A we were working on poems. We already learned how to write a personal poem. But this class we learned what a Haiku poem is. A haiku poems is a different kind of poem. A haiku poem has 3lines, 5 syllables on the first and third line and 7 syllables on the second line, the haiku poem originated from japan, haiku poems never rhyme. Haiku poems are always about nature or a season, the first and last words is never the same and haiku poems are always about the same thing throughout the poem! We had to do haiku poems in class, we had to make a background of the subject we are doing in our poems. My poem was about spring!


  1. What did your poem say about spring?

  2. whats an example besides the one in the picture?
