the empire strikes back…

one of the children that I tutor wrote this Haiku poem. I thought it was nice and told her that I would post it on my blog. Please be kind….she is a soon-to-be 8 year old and kind of new to the whole creative writing/self-expression thing. Here it is…

Today is winter

I see dark gray clouds and rain…

i think it is quite nice actually and she really tried to stick to the basic rules of Haiku. The most obvious being:

1) The 5-7-5 syllable rule for each line

2) The fact that it should only be three line long

3) A focus on nature, seaons, or something that is more than what might be regarded as trivial

Haiku poetry is somewhat interesting — and while i loathed it back in grade school (regarding it only as mindless drivel)…..i now would suggest that you “wiki” it and eventually give Haiku a try.
