Let's write "Haiku" together!

Recently, with Gerard and Shirley, we have discussed a lot of interesting topics.

Today, maybe it is time for us to have a little break, to relax our mind by writing a kind of poetry- Haiku.

“Haiku” is a kind of Japanese poetry, which only includes three lines and 17 syllables in total. The first line and the third both consist of 5 syllables, while the middle line includes 7 syllables. Before we start, jsut think about one theme to be the main topic.
Here is the explanation of “Haiku” in its own form:

Haiku, with seven
Syllables in between two
Shorter lines of five.
(This is from the handout of WSC module- creative writing)

Here are my own “Haiku” poems:

1.Qiuqiu(my dog)

Playing day and night
Sleeping and eating anytime
Dogs live a free life.

2. Birth

Screaming the mother
Followed by a loud crying
It is sound of birth.


Our paradise
Mother, father, me, the dog
We are family.

Don’t be shy, just try.
Only need to remember
‘Seven’ between ‘fives’.
(1st line- 5 syllables; 2nd line- 7 syllables; 3rd line- 5 syllables again)
