1) How to Write a Haiku:

Take five syllables

In line one, and then seven.

Then finish with five.

Pick up your pencil,

Find a blank sheet of paper,

And then write something.

Did you follow the

Proper form? Yeah, I did. O-

Kay, it's a haiku!

4) Examples of Beautiful, Ancient Haikus

Tranquil lily pads

Float in a rippling pond;

Nature is at peace.


School is kind of hard,

And it's a lot of work.

Ugh! I am tired.


Ow! I stubbed my toe.

I need to see a doctor,

or else I might die.


I am so hungry.

Mom, when is lunch? I am not

Your mother, Timmy.

5) You Are Now a Haiku Master

Wow, congrats to you!

My great teaching has shown you

The art of haiku.


I wrote these haikus

And stealing them will result

In disgrace for you.
