What is a syllable?

“All words have syllables. A word

might have one, two, or even more syllables.”

“Reading has two syllables: read (clap)—ing (clap).” To demonstrate, clap as you say each syllable.

“Blue has one syllable: blue (clap).”

“Pumpkin has two syllables: pump (clap)—kin (clap).”

“Now you try. Clap your hands for each syllable in the word pig.”

back to the haiku
Back to the Haiku
  • A subtle word or a little clue can be powerful.
  • Haiku poems used to be only about nature (trees, frogs, seasons, etc.). However, you may write about anything that is related to your theme.
  • Boil it down to exactly what you want to express because you only have a few number of words you can write.
