The haiku is a Japanese poetic form that consists of three lines, with five syllables in the first line, seven in the second, and five in the third. The haiku developed from the hokku, the opening three lines of a longer poem known as a tanka.

Our DTE Youth Group held a workshop for poetry where the students …

Here are their Haikus written in class:

Darkness falls again,
fireflies begin to blink,
the world is at peace.

Summer, such a time
With different adventures
so much life around

Spring wind is blowing
Warm air and blooming flowers
Spring is approaching

snow falls from the sky
cold seeping into your warmth
bundled up with clothes

The wind blow outside,
the water is frozen cold,
the days grow shorter

as the days go on
the fall starts to come again
the signs of winter

A rock splashes water
The sound of water rushing
Goes into the lake

haikus are easy
but sometimes they don’t make sense
