Haiku Tutorial and Announcement!

I think this is too good to not share! Plus, it is the perfect opportunity for me to attempt my first ever Haiku. Do give it a try.
You might also want to hop over to Camster Origami’s post and congratulate him for winning the 2nd place in National Poetry Contest.

Well, here’s my feeble attempt:

Sky full of bright stars
Soothing sound of the river
New voyage beckons

I rarely ask you to reblog my posts, but today, please do! Why? Coming to that part, it’ll be at the end.

So what a bunch of you might not know is I’m a poet.

You also don’t know that I’m an alien.

But that’s beside the point. So, I won 2nd in a National Poetry contest. Yep! So today, I’m going to a) teach you how to make a Haiku and b) make the announcement that’s worth the reblogs!

So let’s get to it, shall we?

But I can’t rhyme, you say. It’s alright- haikus don’t usually rhyme!

So this first part sounds all complicated, but it isn’t: A haiku is a three line poem that has a syllable pattern. No! Don’t go running!

Dang it. Stick figure guy is out. But… it’s okay, it’s not that bad.

Line 1- 5 Syllables

Line 2- 7 Syllables

Line 3- 5…

  1. I like your haiku too. It makes me want to go on a journey down a river and look at a beautiful starry sky as I do so. I don’t think there are many options like that in my neighborhood, though. 🙂
