My Attempt At Writing Haiku Poems

Haiku (俳句 high-koo) are short poems that use sensory language to capture a feeling or image. They are often inspired by an element of nature, a moment of beauty or a poignant experience. Japanese haiku traditionally consist of 17 syllables, divided into three phrases: 5 syllables, 7 syllables, and 5 syllables. Haiku’s don’t tend to usually have a title.

Sunlight graces skin,
the bitter wind blows harshly
Caught between two spells

Shiver from the cold,
a footprint that will not stay
covered by the white

Cracks in the pavement
eroded away by force
I tumble down hard
