Haiku is a form of poetry that originated in Japan. Haikus typically have three lines that follow a five-/seven-/five-syllable format although not all haikus need to follow this structure.
“I don’t think counting 5,7,5 syllables is necessary or desirable. To reflect the natural world, and the season, is to reflect what is.” —Gary Snyder
For our Halloween Haiku's students used compressed charcoal to illustrate their dark shadow scene and wrote their haiku geared towards their art.
