Below is a brief explanation of Haiku which is a Japanese poem
A haiku consists of 3 lines and 17 syllables.
Each line has a set number of syllables see below:
Line 1 – 5 syllables
Line 2 – 7 syllables
Line 3 – 5 syllables
The sky is so blue. 5
The sun is so warm up high. 7
I love the summer. 5
Haiku poems don’t need to rhyme, but for more of a challenge some poets try to rhyme lines 1 and 3. The subject can be anything from nature or from your urban surroundings. Haiku can also be written in the format of 3, 5, 3 syllables.

  1. Wonderful, I will have to look at my bougainvillea in this light instead of cursing at it. Cheers

  2. Amazing flowers and your Haiku is quite beautiful.

  3. I love the reference to a necklace.
    Here is a link to a free e-book written in Haiku verse that you might enjoy.

  4. Bougainvillea is such a beautiful flower and brings back lovely memories of summer heat spent on Greek islands. Love the imagery of the necklace, thanks for adding some sunshine to my day! 🙂
