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..

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...
