In class we have been learning about poems. It’s poems day in and day out. It’s like Poem Mania! We have been learning about Haikus, Diamantes, Cinquains, and Limericks. The one I want to tell you about today is called a Haiku. Haikus originated in Japan. This is how you make a Haiku. Haikus must be five syllables long on the first line. On the second line, they must be seven syllables long. On the last line they must be five syllables long again. A syllable is a unit of organization for a sequence of speech sounds. I also made a haiku on a website called piclet.com. This is how it goes.
If you don’t take risks,
You can not really live free.
I live with freedom.
I wrote this Haiku because I love taking risks. I think I am a big risk taker. I believe that if you take risks, you are living with freedom. You can not go about life always thinking what if. Sometimes, you just have to take a risk. That is why I wrote this poem.
