This haiku was great! This poem shows great imagery, I could just picture the snow on the persons eyelashes. The drawing next to the poem was also really good. Great job!

Haiku is a form of Japanese poetry that combine three different lines and a noticeable grammatical break. The break, or kireji, is often replaced with commas or hyphens in English haiku. Haiku usually includes nature and everyday things and situations so don't think too hard about what to use as a topic. this is exactly what is is. i agree with every one you should stay writing because it is very beautful

Worry is simply a misuse of the imagination.

the first line is 5 syllables, the second its 7 syllables, and the third line is also 5. haikus originate from japan, and their special because they tend to be very short, but that makes the meaning come out stronger.

New Moon - S. Meyer
'I flung my leg over the edge and ram through the knee deep water, it sprays all around me. "Edward!" I yell knowing it is useless. The crowd is too loud and my voice is breathless with exsertion. But I couldn't stop screaming.'

I have a question, what is a Haiku?

And what makes this 3 sentence piece so...special?
