A Haiku is a Japanese lyric poem, also called, "Hokku." It is a three line verse, with 5 syllables on the first line, 7 syllables on the second and 5 on the last line

(Spring)
The wind through the trees -------5 syllables
Carries polen on the breeze-------7
And this makes me sneeze---------5

(Summer)
The sun up on high
Blazing through the cloudless skies
Nearly burns my eyes

(Autumn)
And now summers gone
Winter soon will roll along
Leaves cover the ground

(Winter)
Brrr, its flamin cold
I think its because Im old
Need hot girls to hold

Thinking rather hard
I put pen to paper
And out flows this verse.

It's funny how the line with 7 syllables is shorter than the ones with 5 :D

You merely have to change your point of view slightly, and then that glass will sparkle when it reflects the light. I doubt that anything else could argue its own existence more eloquently." ~Lelouch
