Poppy Haikus

Poetry - Remembrance Poppy Haikus

 

We have been learning about haikus. Haikus are a form of poetry from Japan that have a very specific structure. 

 

* They must have 3 lines

 

* The first  line has to have 5 syllables (beats in a word).

 

* The second line has to have 7 syllables.

 

* The third line has to have 5 syllables.

 

We also used lots of descriptive techniques like other forms of poetry. (You can see our free verse harvest poems here...)

 

* ADJECTIVES: describing words (Eg. bright, colourful, beautiful)

 

* ADVERBS: words that describe how, often ending in -ly (Eg. slowly, calmly, beautifully)

 

* ALLITERATION: a phrase where both words start with the same letter or sound (Eg. perfect pumpkin, super squash)

 

* SIMILES: describing one thing 'like' or 'as' something else (Eg. standing straight like soldiers, a river as bendy as a snake)
