 " Haiku Poetry For You "


Greetings from Island Geisha,

I have had several requests on how to write `Haiku Poetry`
therefore I have outlined a short form of it here, on posting line
rather than doing it individually as it covers too much space
to do it in feedback..
You may also visit my site at www.poetrypoem.com/islandgeisha
for more detailed information!

Haiku is a poetic form and a type of poetry from the Japanese culture.
Haiku combines form, content, and language in a meaningful, yet compact form.
 Haiku poets, which you will soon be, write about everyday things.
 Many themes include nature, feelings, or experiences.
 Usually they use simple words and grammar.
The most common form for Haiku is three short lines.
The first line usually contains five (5) syllables,
the second line seven (7) syllables,
and the third line contains five (5) syllables.
 Haiku doesn't rhyme. A Haiku must "paint" a mental image in the reader's mind.
 This is the challenge of Haiku - to put the poem's meaning and imagery
in the reader's mind in ONLY 17 syllables over just three (3) lines of poetry

Here are three examples of Haiku Poetry depicting this image of early sunrise..

`Here are 3 examples for the above Early Sunrise Scene...

rising Before Break (five syllables)
she is a sun worshiper (seven syllables)
God's word revealed, Dawn (five syllables)
waking each morning (5)
praying words to the sun, please (7)
carry these to her (5)
rising each morning (5)
God's gift of light, joy, and love (7)
she is my dawn (5)

Here is an image of a rainbow
if you'd like to try your hand at writing a haiku poem..
Give it a try/ It's fun and simple to do!
Thank you, Island Geisha!
