What is a haiku? A form of poetry that originated hundreds of years ago in Japan. In a haiku, poets try to paint a clear picture with very few words. Traditional haikus have three lines. The first and third lines contain 5 syllables, and the second line contains 7 syllables. They typically center on a symbol that reminds the reader of something in nature. For example: Warm, gentle breeze brings The fragrance of new flowers— Spring blows softly in.
Symbolism Symbolism is a person, place, object, or activity that stands for something beyond itself– a concrete noun represents an abstract thought. For example: With dread, she watched the geese form their perfect V to fly south.
