122. Haiku

Updated: Jul 14, 2019

As i'm heading to Japan soon I thought it might be fun to write a Haiku poem.


Haikus follow a strict form: three lines, with a 5-7-5 syllable structure. To count syllables in a word, put your hand under your chin. Then, say the word. Every time your chin touches your hand, this is one syllable. A haiku doesn't have to rhyme or follow a certain rhythm as long as it sticks to the syllable count.

Sun baked summertime

A low, fierce sun looks on

Hugging the sky
