So, what did you think of my masterpiece poem? What? The poem didn’t rhyme? That’s the beauty of poetry. . .it doesn’t have to. If you read my poem really slowly and count the syllables, you’ll see that I followed the 5-7-5 rule for both parts of my poem! How fun! And now it's your turn! Give it a whirl and create your own haikus, then please share them with me. I'd love to hear your masterpieces.
