Haiku's are probably the shortest well written three lined form of poetry that one will ever read! A Haiku which consists of three lines, 5 syllabols, 7 syllabols, and 5 syllabols! I will be posting numerous ones that i wrote and feel free to share some of your. Even if you are just experimenting try some!! DEVOTION The Solitude shared, Between the love of two souls, We devote our lives! CHIRPING BIRDS Chirping and Singing, A chorus of peaceful bliss, A new days begun! LOVE The longing we urn, With all of its twists and turns, Marriage we are bond! EYES The longing we urn, With all of its twists and turns, Marriage we are bond! DREAMS Takes over our minds, As we slowly drift away, Dreams take us astray These are just some of my Haikus that i have wrote!! Care to share!!

We did a unit in 3rd grade on Haiku. I've forgotten how beautiful they can be in their simplicity.

That's a pretty nice Haiku you got there. I just love Haikus. =) I find this piece of Japanese literature great and soothing. I've always been fascinated with how Japanese people come up with such brilliant ideas for their Haikus. =)

When I lived in Japan I published haiku through this mainichi site: http://mdn.mainichi-msn.co.jp/entertainment/etc/haiku/ I'm not sure if they can award prizes to international entries but you can enter your English haiku here.

Here are the two I entered: winters in New York soft snowflakes aren't as cold as Okinawan rain And this one I wrote one night in Japan when I was homesick: darkness comes early cold winds chase clouds from night's sky stars show the way home :)

There are some really good ones here. I guess I will give it a try. 5, 7, 5 okay here goes: tears can be wiped off smiles brighten the dark day warming each true soul Well there it is. As sad as it is to admit, I tend to have trouble figuring out just how many syllables some words have. For being so small they are not the easiest things to write.

Hi, I like doing English exercises. I was never very good at writing serious and meaningful Haiku. I use to e-mail them back and forth among friends as a fun activity. I also like the ones you've posted, you are very good. I have a contribution, but only because you inspired me to. I whipped them out of thin air with the aid of my fingers, the latter making sure their structure is consistant with the criteria. The ground belched fire My legs are fastened in place Nature is angry I hate the dentist An arcane torture Chamber I must boycot sweets ;-)
