Poetic Forms: Haiku

Hello Beautiful Thinkers,

This one is a form that I’m sure that you’re all familiar with even if you’re new to my blog, the haiku. That’s right it’s time for one of your favorite syllable count based poems again BTs. This Japanese based form of poetry does a 5-7-5 syllable count. That’s only 17 syllables which means you’ve got very little room to make your point with this poem. Word choice is always important in poetry but when you have such a small number to work with you’ll truly appreciate how much more each word means. I’m sure that you’ll all find the perfect syllables to express what you want in your haiku.

Keep Dreaming Beautiful Thinkers,

The Boy In The Heart Shades
