  24. What is Haiku • Modern Haiku. • The history of the modern haiku dates from Masaoka Shiki's reform, begun in 1892, which established haiku as a new independent poetic form. Shiki's reform did not change two traditional elements of haiku: the division of 17 syllables into three groups of 5, 7, and 5 syllables and the inclusion of a seasonal theme.

  25. How to write Haiku • In japanese, the rules for how to write Haiku are clear, and will not be discussed here. In foreign languages, there exist NO consensus in how to write Haiku-poems. Anyway, let's take a look at the basic knowledge:

  26. What to write about? • Haiku-poems can describe almost anything, but you seldom find themes which are too complicated for normal PEOPLE's recognition and understanding. Some of the most thrilling Haiku-poems describe daily situations in a way that gives the reader a brand new experience of a well-known situation.

  27. The metrical pattern of Haiku • Haiku-poems consist of respectively 5, 7 and 5 syllables in three units. In Japanese, this is a must, but in English, which has variation in the length of syllables, this can sometimes be difficult.

  28. The seasonal theme. • Each Haiku must contain a kigo, a season word, which indicate in which season the Haiku is set. For example, cherry blossoms indicate spring, snow indicate winter, and mosquitoes indicate summer, but the season word isn't always that obvious.

  29. Examples Autumn An island song Like a floating river Rain Rain Fall Fall

  30. Computers • Spring backup in CS lab:time to fall in love withcertain humanware. • alone, on the web,drops of sensitivityembrace an eyelash

  31. Food • Sushi and SoyaThe Spring comesWhen the day is over

  32. Now you try • For our writing project, we are going to create several haiku that work as riddles. This means that your poem is about a thing (or an animal), but the poem does not say exactly what the thing (or the animal) is. The poem only gives clues, and the reader must guess what it is talking about.

  33. How? • First choose your answer to the riddle you are going to make from the following categories. • 1. An animal (pet, farm animal, wild animal, fish, bird, insect, etc.)2. A thing from nature (sun, moon, cloud, rain, ocean, mountain, river, flower, plant, fruit, etc.)3. A man-made thing (food, tool, toy, clothes, appliances, etc.)

  34. How (con’t) • Let’s say, as an example, that you picked the word, “book”. Now consider the following questions and make brainstorming webs. • What does it look like? (Color, size, shape, etc.) • What is it made of? What are its parts? • What does it do? What is it for? • In case of an animal, what does it eat? Where does it live?

  35. How (con’t) • Example: Book • made of paper • made from a tree; • has words • printed with ink; • people read for fun or for study; • bookstores and libraries have them; • can have pictures and illustrations; • authors write books, etc, etc.

  36. How (con’t) • Then create a haiku using words associated with your answer, but not the answer itself. Here is an example of haiku riddle, whose answer is a “book”. Made from trees and inkI’m full of words, fun and wise,for you to enjoy

  37. Limericks • Limericks are meant to be funny. The last line of a good limerick contains the PUNCH LINE or "heart of the joke." As you work with limericks, remember to have fun. The rhyme pattern is a,a,b,b,a. The first two lines contain 9 syllables each, the second two 5 syllables each, and the last 9 syllables: A flea and a fly in a flue Were caught, so what could they do? Said the fly, "Let us flee." "Let us fly," said the flea. So they flew through a flaw in the flue.

  38. Getting started • To help you get started, here's some helpful information about writing limericks. To begin, a limerick is a funny little poem containing five lines. The last words of the first, second, and fifth lines rhyme with each other (A), and the last words of the third and fourth lines rhyme with each other (B). • Rhyme scheme a,a,b,b,a

  39. Lets try one There once was a pauper named Meg Who accidentally broke her _______. She slipped on the ______. Not once, but thrice Take no pity on her, I __________.

  40. Example • There was an old man from Peru, (A) da DUM da da DUM da da DUM who dreamed he was eating his shoe. (A) da DUM da da DUM da da DUM He awoke in the night (B) da DUM da da DUM with a terrible fright, (B) da da DUM da da DUM and found out that it was quite true. (A) da DUM da da DUM da da DUM

  41. Some funny ones • A clumsy young fellow named Tim (A) was never informed how to swim. (A) He fell off a dock (B) and sunk like a rock. (B) And that was the end of him. (A)

  42. An exceedingly fat friend of mine, When asked at what hour he'd dine, Replied, "At eleven,      At three, five, and seven, And eight and a quarter past nine.

  43. There once was a fly on the wall, I wonder why didn't it fall. Because its feet stuck Or was it just luck Or does gravity miss things so small?

  44. There once was a slimmer named Steen Who grew so phenomenally lean And flat, and compressed, That his back touched his chest, So that sideways he couldn't be seen.

  45. How to write one 1) Brainstorm on a topic or theme you want to write. Whether it's love, friendship, hatred or even cupcakes, you'll do well if you understand and like the topic.

  46. Step 2 • Think of two different words that have a lot of other 'rhymes'. "Cat" is one example, "ball" is another.

  47. Step 3 • The next two lines should rhyme with a different word. These should be shorter than line number 1 and 2.

  48. Step 4 • The last line should be funny or the 'punch line'. The last words should rhyme with the word of the 1 and 2 lines.

  49. Step 5 • Read it and laugh!

  50. Now you try • Write a funny limerick about each one of your classes • Keep it classroom appropriate • Have fun!!!!!!
