Haiku Resources – The GiggleIT Project

Haiku poems consist of three lines – 5 syllables, 7 syllables, 5 syllables – and don’t rhyme. Traditional haiku is about nature and is written in the present tense.

Five sy-lla-bles first,
Next, se-ven sy-lla-bles here,
Then end-ing with five.

The Through My Window Haiku” Spotlight Project in “Through My Window: The Colors of My World” theme includes more information and examples.

Haiku writing for Kids

Haiku, by Katy Manck

Golden grain waving,
Autumn breezes puff and push –
Farmers now harvest.
