In My Room

my room
the curtain billows
my feet are warmed by the floor
a cricket chirps

Haiku seems simple until you try to create one yourself!

Haiku poems contain three word groupings in separate poetry lines. Seventeen total syllables comprise the Japanese poetry style but are divided into a five – seven – five syllable count for each corresponding line.

Some forms of poetry tell a story through verses, but a haiku describes only a moment in time. The compact format does not allow for longer descriptive lines and verses but only enough syllables within the three lines to explain feelings, thoughts, scenes or actions in a single moment.
