Haiku - Poetry

Hello. 
You know what a poetry is, right? If we study deeper about poetry, we will know that there are many types of poetry and one of them is Haiku poem.


What is Haiku poem?
So, "Haiku" is a traditional form of Japanese poetry. Haiku poems consist of 3 lines. The first and last lines of a Haiku have 5 syllables and the middle line has 7 syllables. The lines rarely rhyme.


Below are the example of Haiku poems I made in my third semester of undergraduate.


Run
Every day I run
I run in indecision
Why am I running?

Young
His nickname is Young
He came home today morning
He is our pet.





Look at the poems above. Each of them have 3 line, the first and the third lines consist of 5 syllables and the seconds have 7 syllables. How to know the syllables they have? Try to count it with your finger while you pronounce every lines. 
Example:
 ( /ˈev-ri-deΙͺ/ - /aΙͺ/ - /rʌn/)
See, it has 5 syllables right? Try to count other lines. After that, make a new Haiku poem of yours. Good luck... :)
