Good Morning Everyone:

Throughout the month of April you've learned poetry comes in all kinds of forms and fashions. Today I want to share another fun way to write a poem.

HAIKU (hikoo is how it's pronounced) - 1. a Japanese three line poem of usually 17 syllables. 2. an English imitation of this.

Here are three examples of ones I've written. After you've finished reading mine - why not try your hand at writing a Haiku yourself. Not too many words, but in the end you've said so much.

Waters flow downstream,
Cascading to meet the river.
Where does it ever end?

At peace, the forest rests.
Creatures, life, nature.
Simple, yet profound.

Our God, the Majestic One
in all the earth. Praise Him.
He is awesome.

Love ya,

PS: Be sure to check in on Thursday and Friday because they are the last two days of my month long Poemapalooza. I hope you've enjoyed this journey as much as I have.
