Haiku is a traditional poetry form that comes from Japan.
* It consists of three lines. The first line and third line both have five syllables and the middle line has seven (But we will not be very strict).
* Haiku appeals to the senses (sight, sound, smell, taste, touch) and touch the heart.
* Nature Art can accompany your haiku, and it is also encouraged!
