Haiku is a Japanese poem of 17 syllables in 3 lines

five syllables in the first line

seven in the second line

five syllables in the third line


Traditionally, haikus focus on a moment in time, juxtaposing two images. Haiku creates a sudden sense of enlightenment, just as yoga does. 

Write your own haiku, depicting your process of transformation.  Email your poems to me at and I'll read them before class starts, or you can read the poem aloud yourself.
